Friday Funnies - Jean-Baptiste Elissalde the Matador

Friday Funnies - Jean-Baptiste Elissalde the Matador

As a hectic weekend of rugby approaches, here's a quick clip of a pretty funny piece of play that was requested by a regular who spotted it during a match a few weeks back.

The match in question was Sale against Toulouse in the Heineken Cup, and as you can see here, scrumhalf Jean Baptiste Elissalde did his very best to avoid making the tackle on massive Sale number eight Sisa Koyamaibole.

Koyamaibole is about 6ft3 and 120kg's, so the far smaller Elissalde, close to 50kg's lighter, probably did a wise thing as he effectively ushered the big Fijian through, while trying his best to make it look like a tackle of course.

If you're a little guy out there and see a brute of a forward charging directly towards you, perfect this technique and you'll live long in the game, as has the 32 year old Elissalde.
