Huge collision between Francis Fainifo & Lelia Masaga

Huge collision between Francis Fainifo & Lelia Masaga

With less than ten minutes to go, and a twenty point difference on the scoreboard, you'd think that the commitment would start to lack as the teams play out the final minutes of a game.

But on the weekend in the Super 14 we saw tremendous commitment from young Brumbies winger Francis Fainifo under the high ball. Chiefs flyer Lelia Masaga chased hard but mistimed his run unfortunately, and ended up taking Fainifo out which caused him to flip through the air and land horrifically. Masaga also got a knee in the face for his troubles.

Luckily, both players walked away unscathed from the big collision, and Masaga was penalised for taking the man out in the air, which was technically a fair call, albeit harsh considering he also got a fair pounding.

Fainifo got up incredibly high to compete for the ball so late in the game, which was really impressive. The one problem with that though is - what goes up, must come down.
