There were a few decent hits on Sunday in the Six Nations game between England and Italy in Rome. Paul Sackey was one of the contenders for hit of the week with his well timed tackle on the Italian (edit) flanker after an Andy Gomersall up and under.
In my opinion though the biggest hit was this Jamie Noon cruncher. Italian New Zealander Kane Robinson felt the brunt of it and got rocked backwards after receiving a pass that wasn't too kind.
Noon lined him up and waited, then hit him hard. Great technique and perfectly legal.
Excuse the commentator thinking it was Wilkinson though. Easy mistake to make I guess.
