Federico Pucciarello tastes Peter Stringers boot

Peter Stringer is officially the shortest international scrumhalf currently playing the game. He's about 4ft2 and probably weighs the same as a 13 year old girl. Despite that, he's a quality player, and has represented Ireland in over 70 tests and has been a stalwart of Munster rugby, notching up over 100 caps.

Amazingly though, in the recent Munster vs Llanelli game, that size 4 boot managed to knock big Argentinian Italian prop Federico Pucciarello to the floor when this freak accident occurred.

Entering a ruck, I doubt Pucciarello ever thought in his wildest dreams that this would happen.

But, as with the great tackles we see Stringer making time and time again, for a small guy he clearly packs more of a pu... kick than we all thought.
