Georgian heart - Huge hit by Irakli Machkhaneli effects the try

Georgian heart - Huge hit effects the try

Big Georgian winger Irakli Machkhaneli puts in a huge crash tackle on Namibian Heini Bok as the Namibians try fruitlessly to get the ball wide in their Rugby World Cup group clash.

Machkhaneli came in fast and hard, blindsiding Bok and hitting him perfectly legally, knocking the ball out of this hands.

The bounce after that was perfect, and the Georgian flyer picked it up in a flash and sped off, signalling to the crowd that it's all about heart.

Final score: 30-0 to Georgia
