Sebastien Chabal hunts down Iain Balshaw with late tackle

Simply put, everyone loves Sebastien Chabal. The big guy is currently one of the most recognisable figures in world rugby, particularly after the World Cup in France in which fans were flocking to see the big caveman and his flowing locks in action.

After the Six Nations kicked off last weekend, it seems that simply put, everyone dislikes Iain Balshaw.

Balshaw was a bit of a surprise selection at fullback for England and coach Brian Ashton has taken quite a bit of heat about for it.

With that in mind, I'm posting this clip of Chabal hunting down Balshaw early last year when Sale took on Gloucester. Chabal's hit is pretty late and he gives away a penalty, but I figured some of the anti-Balshaw brigade and the Chabal fans would enjoy this one.
