Federico Pucciarello tastes Peter Stringers boot

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. But 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 (still not sure how that works to be honest) 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 punc... kick than we all thought.
