Wycliff Palu crunching hit results in his own try

Wycliff Palu crunching hit results in his own try

Big unit Wycliff Palu scored two great tries and put in a huge performance for his Waratahs in their convincing 25-10 win over the Sharks in Sydney on the weekend.

For his first try Wallaby Palu made a huge hit on AJ Venter which jolted the ball free, resulting in the turnover for the Tahs which led to Palu himself finishing off the try after steamrolling over a few hapless Sharks defenders.

"I was struggling to have a good hit the last couple of weeks so it was something I've been working on with Kissy (Waratahs defensive coach Les Kiss) to get in a good position to really ice somebody," Palu said.

"It was good, AJ just patted me on the back after so I don't think I hurt him."
