This little piece of action comes to us from our good friends over in France, and more specifically, down at Toulon.
Toulon has been featured on RD before, mainly for it being in the headlines with big name acquisitions such as George Gregan, Andrew Mehrtens, Victor Matfield, and then more recently, talk of Dan Carter going there.
The French Second Division, or Pro D2 is known for it's ferocity as we've highlighted in the past, and in this short clip you get a good feeling for it.
The massive hit near the beginning comes in from Narbonne's Sebastien Geni on Toulon's center Davyd Douy. Duoy is smashed to the floor, and as you can see, looks to be in bad shape for quite some time.
Later in the clip we see Andrew Mehrtens getting into a scuffle after a late hit on him, and then there's even time for a nice try in the end.
Plenty of action whenever Toulon play it seems, and we'll more than likely be seeing them in the Top 14 next season, mixing it up with the big boys.
