Howlett and Tipoki big hits for Munster against Saracens

Howlett and Tipoki big hits for Munster against Saracens

After receiving many requests for these two hits from the Heineken Cup Semi Final from two weeks ago, which took place between Munster and Saracens, here is a short clip of them for those who requested to see them again.

The first is from Doug Howlett on Neil De Kock, who ends up winded clutching for air from a perfectly legal challenge that dislodges the ball causing the knock on.

The ref blows the whistle seeing as there's no advantage, but Rua Tipoki fails to hear it and puts in a huge tackle on Saracens flyer Richard Haughton. For some reason, seeing a hit like this after the whistle has blown makes it seem even harder considering it shouldn't have happened.
