Joe Marler smashes big wing George North at Franklin's Gardens

Prop Joe Marler made a huge tackle on big Northampton Saints, Wales and Lions wing George North during Harlequins meeting with the Saints this weekend. Here is a quick look at the hit as well as highlights from the match.

Saints won the match 23-9 and North scored a well taken try after bumping off a far smaller challenge in the form of Charlie Walker, but when up against Marler he came off second best.

"Young Charlie Walker is a talented player but when you're one on one with George, you have to make sure you make a good tackle," said Jim Mallinder of the impressive North try. "We needed that from George, it was fantastic to see him score in the corner."

George Pisi also made a huge hit, but his was of the illegal vareity and he was sinbinned. View highlights of the match, including North's try and Pisi's hit, on page two of this post.
