Sam Tuitupou's big tackle on Eamonn Sherridan

Here's a short clip of a big tackle that Sale Sharks centre Sam Tuitupou made on 6ft4 London Irish centre Eamonn Sheridan when the two sides met in the Aviva Premiership recently.

Sheridan had kicked the ball ahead so possibly wasn't expecting the contact, but Tuitupou commited himself and smashed the bigger man to the floor with a perfect tackle.

Great hit and even though it's a short clip, it has been added to the RD Big Hits archive.

I'm not saying that the hit is illegal, but putting in a smash after the ball has gone and the player is off balance or not expecting it is really easy and doesn't take much skill or strength. It's an every game occurrence even at amateur level what is so special about this one?

Agreed, more fortuitous timing than anything
