Ma'a Nonu absolutely slaughters Ben Blair

Ma'a Nonu absolutely slaughters Ben Blair

The 2004 Super 12 game between the Hurricanes and the Highlanders produced one of the biggest hits ever to be seen on a rugby field. It looked like man against child when Ma'a Nonu lined up Ben Blair and smashed him into next week.

Blair took a while to get up after being flipped onto his back like a rag doll. You'd too after having the wind knocked out of you with a hit like that.

I think commentator Murray Mexted describes it best when watching the replay -
'Would Mr & Mrs Blair please turn the television set off...'

Sidenote: We managed to dig this one out of the vaults thanks too it being listed in the Requests section here on RD, so if you think of any other classics please list them there. Also, thanks to the guy who asked for it. Enjoy watching it again. I know I certainly did.
