Incredible chase by Lifeimi Mafi to stop Dwayne Peel

Incredible chase by Lifeimi Mafi to stop Dwayne Peel


In a game that ended up looking more like a tropical monsoon, Munsters Lifeimi Mafi showed tremendous guts, determination, and most importantly immense speed, to chase down and catch Llanelli Scarlet Dwayne Peel.

Lets not forget that Dwayne Peel is regarded as being lightning fast by most. He outstripped Rua Tipoki who is no slouch, and looked to be home for the try.

The effort by Mafi was great to see. Raw pace is a vital component to any rugby players armoury, and in Lifeimi Mafi, Munster have got themselves a gem. He saved the try, but unfortunately got yellow carded by Wayne Barnes for smothering the ball before getting back to his feet. The correct call, and it was a pity to see him go, but saving the try was well worth it and one of the best try saving chases and tackles I've seen in a while.
