Tom Shanklin try saving tackle on Juan Smith

Tom Shanklin try saving tackle on Juan Smith

In a game the Springboks would like to forget about as soon as possible, the Barbarians put up some tremendous defence and shut out all Springbok attacks showing a passion that made them deserving winners on the day.

A brilliant covering tackle from Welsh center Tom Shanklin on big Juan Smith as he charged for the line epitomised the dedication and spirit of Barbarians rugby. Shanklin got in low to drive the much larger man out with no problem.

Legendary All Black Justin Marshall was on hand to take to inside flick, which if he weren't, would have easily been collected by Bryan Habana. The commentators sing Marshalls praises, but in my opinion the actual tackle is the real try saver.

Well played by both of them though. Juan Smith is a giant of a man and Bryan Habana is a true predator, so Tom Shanklin and Justin Marshall, take a bow.
