Huge hit by Gcobani Bobo results in the try for Kankowski

Huge hit by Gcobani Bobo results in the try for Kankowski

Gcobani Bobo was at one stage the Springboks new shining light at center. After a fantastic Super 12 in 2004, he looked destined for big things.

But not long after his call up to the senior side, disaster stuck with a number of injuries, including an injury common to rugby players, the ACL (Anterior Cruciate Ligament) in his knee tore.

Bobo was out for a long time. He returned to rugby with a contract with the Sharks from Durban, but more prominently, he played for the Springbok Sevens side, achieving success with them all around the world.

He's now back playing for the Sharks in the Currie Cup, and coming off the bench on saturday against the Lions he put in two massive hits. This one, the second, jolted the ball loose for dynamic number eight Ryan Kankowski to kick ahead and show great pace to score.

As well as clips from around the world past and present, we'll be bringing you the best of the best from the World Cup as it happens in the upcoming weeks, so keep checking back for the best rugby videos on the net.
