Antoine Burban's huge covering tackle on Perpignan's Watisoni Votu

Stade Francais beat Perpignan 19-12 in the Top 14 on Sunday afternoon after all their points, other than a penalty try, were scored by Jerome Fillol. Flanker Antoine Burban was outstanding for the Parisians on the day, making turnovers and tackles all over the park.

This incredible covering tackle was one that he made on Fijian centre Watisoni Votu, who beat the first tackler as Perignan attacked, but was absolutely smashed by Burban as he stepped inside.

Let's hope we see more great tackles throughout 2014. On that note, Happy New Year to you and your loved ones. It's been a good festive season and we'll be back in the full swing of things soon.
