George North and Richard Hibbard huge hits in lead up to Israel Folau try

Wales put up a good fight but went down 30-26 to the Wallabies in Cardiff earlier today in one of the best games of the season. The contest featured some incredibly physical confrontations and collisions from both sides. Here's a look at the two biggest hits.

We'll get longer highlights posted tomorrow but for now here is a look at the Israel Folau try that featured two huge hits, one big bump and a bit of afters too.

First George North, who was on top form for Wales again, came in and blindsided Adam Ashley-Cooper with a smashing tackle, then seconds later it was hard working hooker Richard Hibbard that did the same to Wallaby skipper Ben Mowen just meters from the tryline.

Australia stayed on task and despite the 'offensive defence' from Wales, fullback Folau bumped off aggressive as always Mike Phillips to score a very well taken try.

For fans of the sport, that passage of play had so much to enjoy, and while the push and shove afterwards wasn't great, it was good to see the intensity that both sides brought to the contest.

What did you think of the match, and these hits? As mentioned, more highlights from this game as well as the Dubai 7's, Barbarians match and more, will be posted soon.
