Clermont tackles compilation video

Clermont tackles compilation video

As we all know, tackling is a hugely important element to a successful rugby player, and of course, to a team. We've always maintained a large focus on hits and tackles here on RD, so this video fits in with that nicely.

The compilation itself comes from the official Clermont Auvergne website and features three minutes of textbook, solid hits that are pretty much a great example of the correct way to make tackles in rugby.

There are of course a few big, spectacular looking moments, but all in all, it features a whole load of great defence, with some solid driving tackles from the forwards in the tight exchanges.

It's a good find by a forum user, and well worth watching. Thanks to that user, and of course the Clermont website that put it together.
