Dan Scarborough big hit on Percy Montgomery

Dan Scarborough big hit on Percy Montgomery

This is a fantastic hit by Dan Scarborough on Percy Montgomery in the second test between England and South Africa at Loftus Versfeld in Pretoria. This tackle temporarily injured both players involved.

Monty was most likely winded from getting knocked on his backside by the English winger. As far Scarborough himself, you can see his arm go lame straight after the tackle.

Smashing hit.

Did I read that correctly, dont tell me theres a Yanky doodle dip shit septic tank, actually daring to look at a rugby website, when your so fucking soft you have to wear a helmet and shoulder pads when you eat your supersize McDonalds, go and have a heart attack you overbaring wanker. Rugby rules, go find another witless hamster to run your country...xxxEngland.Ps... are you gay?

Why is it that these messgae boards always get hijacked? You would expect it at a soccer website, but guys, rugby has always been a little bit smarter and wittier than soccer. Lets try and keep it that way and stop the pissing contests.

I went to the test and the whole of Loftus went "oooohhh" afer that hit. Fair play to Percy for getting up so quick, and to Scarbs aswell. Pity we got stuffed but was an entertaining game, my smugness when we were winning at half time, walking to the toilet with my England flag over my shoulder was completely unjustified! The beer in Pretoria eased the pain though!

Did anyone hear the commentator? Priceless his arm has gone limp must have hit his sciatic nerve last time I looked the sciatic nerve was in the leg. South Africans trying to sound clever it just doesnt suit them.

Huge hit. Might technically have been a charge, but he tried to grab hold and failed cos of the dead arm, so you can't blame him for that. Dan was the best player Phil Davies ever allowed to leave Headingly.

percy's good. but he panicked. if he wasn't worried about mr. scarface he would have looked at his south african pal and thrown him the ball.

If you look a little closer instead of arguing about how you hate other countries then you would notice that he tries to lift the leg but as he has a seas arm, he can't. I hate Montgomery, big poof. Great tackle

hey this is completely unrelated; but for all u pussy.. i mean 'percy'... loving southafricans out there: do u have any idea how much ppl in other countries hate and make fun of him for being the tard he is? like on the TV show inside rugby in oz they have the 'percy of the week', for the worst blunder of a play done in the super 14 that week... and if your ever around any kids, or adults for that matter, playing a friendly game of rugby and someone screws up you'll hear ppl yell 'haha what a percy!'.. im just curious if you guys do the same thing in SA as goes on in AUS and NZ?

Fair enough, when percy plays badly he's unbelievably bad, but when he plays well, he's someone you can rely on (RWC final to bring sa the cup and for the sharks)to set up tries and join the line. has a huge boot too. big hit by scarborough, well done, but percy showed experience. good call by 'dan'- this is a rugby website so keep it on the field and dont bring the attributes of countries into this argument, its irrelevant. if you want to do that go to www.chavball-hatetoloseandwhinewhenwedo.co.uk

nice hit i also was waiting a long time for this to come out on rugby dump -it is one of the only good things to come out of the tour!. i dont think its illegal because he made the effort to get his arms out - its just the recoil was so great that both players where pushed apart. btw does anyone know why dan scarborough has not had more games with england? From the merit of this tour alone he looked the best of a bad lot with his runaway try and this massive hit?
