Zinzan Brooke huge hit from the past

Zinzan Brooke huge hit from the past

Regarded by many as the best number eight ever to play the game, Auckland and All Black legend Zinzan Brooke had it all - huge defence included.

We've managed to dig up this massive hit from a Super 12 game between Auckland and the Waratahs from roughly 1996. The tackle almost looks like it could be from rugby league, but, it is in fact perfectly legal.

A high shot in the tackle a little earlier gave the Waratahs a chance to spark something as the referee played advantage. Zinzan, however, shuts the NSW backline down immediately and effectively tells them, ' You can have 3 points mate, but you'll have to do better than that if you want 7 .'
