Liam Messam puts the shoulder in

Liam Messam puts the shoulder in

In the 2006 Churchill Cup Final, the New Zealand Maori took on Scotland B. The Maori defense was bruising throughout. This tackle by Liam Messam isn't much of a tackle though, more of a body check. Should have been dealt with by the ref probably. Not sure how he didn't see anything wrong with it?
Looks more like the type of hits you'd see in Rugby League, where they allow it.
