Isn't he trying to offload?

He was trying to offload, looks like the offload was either too low or the supporting player just missed it altogether...

Love it. Sit down.
Hate to be dull, but WTF is Biggar doing trying to tackle a monster like O'Brien standing upright? Disappointing tackle attempt by the No8 too.
None of which takes away from a delightful "don't argue".

They don't call him the "Tullow Tank" for nothing!

I wonder whatever happened to the video of Tony Buckley's handoff on Simon Shaw. It was probably the biggest handoff ever in terms of the size of the two players involved, but it's nowhere to be found on the internet.

Great stuff by the O'Brien in any case. Unfortunate knock-on, but it was actually the supporting player who knocked it on because the pass was a bit low.

No handoff will ever top Buckley's one on Shaw - he picks shaw up by the chin and dumps him flat on his back!

Any chance of digging that one out RD?

Tullow Tank is some sight when he is on the charge!

Yes, we had it posted in 2007 here, but it's since been removed. Can't recall if there is a backup anywhere but will do some digging.

That's how you charge in without lifting your elbow.

A back row hands off a fly half....

Can someone explain why this is at all special?

Any footage of Jimmy Gopperth's try saver right at the end? Textbook tackle if ever there was one!

This nicely demonstrates the strength and limitations of SOB. Immensely strong and powerful with the ball in hand, but disappointing handling skills and rugby brain. I think a move to hooker would have been sensible earlier in his career, but then he'd have to throw the ball in

No way was that a knock on or a throw forward
