Huge tackle from Hawkes Bay's Hikairo Forbes against Northland

Huge tackle from Hawkes Bay's Hikairo Forbes against Northland

We've got a bit of a history with posting big hits here on RD. Everyone loves seeing them after all, so here's a quick clip of a great tackle that happened in New Zealand's brilliant ITM Cup recently.

As you are well aware of, it's a crazy period on the rugby calendar, what with the Tri Nations, World Cup war-up matches, and then of course the Currie Cup and ITM Cup seasons. We're also do all sorts of behind the scenes stuff here with RD, so that's meant that the latter comps have admittedly had to have been neglected a bit, unfortunately.

What always helps though is when a user submits a request for something specific. It just makes the whole process of finding the best bits that much easier, quicker, and more rewarding for everyone involved. This was the case with today's post, as someone watched the match, noted the tackle, then dropped a post in the Request section on the forum. Easy.

So if you find yourself watching a lot of Currie Cup or ITM Cup lately, please feel free to do the same so that great moments can be shared with the world here on the site. Of course that applies to internationals too, of which we have bucket loads of in just ten days time.

This great hit came from Hawkes Bay's hooker Hikairo Forbes on Northland's replacement flanker Joel McKenty. It's nice to see a good old fashioned dump tackle that isn't penalised.

Northland won the match 43-34.
