The Ross Rennie tackle on Brian O'Driscoll

The Ross Rennie tackle on Brian O'Driscoll

In the Six Nations last weekend we saw Scotland take on Ireland at Croke Park, in a game that produced some splendid tries and examples of incredible skill .

The game also produced this flip tackle by Ross Rennie on Irish captain Brian O'Driscoll. The footage has been highly requested so here it is.

O'Driscoll was literally flipped over substitute Rennie's shoulder, Judo style.

The referee saw nothing wrong with it, which technically is probably incorrect considering O'Driscoll's feet were above his hips and Rennie didn't lower him to the ground, as the law stipulates you should do.

It wasn't however a proper spear tackle as such, so therefore Rennie got away with it. A lot of refs may have seen it differently though, with a penalty, and perhaps even a yellow card being shown.
