I guess Deysel ate the scrum halfs last rolo or something...

Gotta say that this goes to show that you can make a big hit and wrap your arms in the tackle, and not have the ball carrier "bounce off" and not get your arms around in time. Great tackle.

I don't think anyone ever said you couldn't. Just because you can, doesn't mean every time someone bounces off you need to ban the tackler.

1,000,000 x yes!
these fixtures should be played more often. Great to see two club sides from across the world squaring off.

I'm sorry but it doesn't show that at all, all these hits show the tackler moving towards the ball carrier and fully controlling the hit, sometimes the tackler will be stood still and the ball carrier will run into him, bouncing off before the tackler has time to rap and follow through with the tackle because he may notbe in full control, rugby is a fast game and a millisecond cam make a huge difference , and sometimes in that millisecond can mean a no arm tackle. Having said that I'm a 6 and love a cheeky shoulder charge, good hits nonetheless

"One of those [South Africans] is big lock Mouritz Botha"

Except Mouritz is now officially a Pom. Or does he not like being reminded?

This is the future. Champions League style international club matches.

Would you rather watch Leicester vs Wellington Hurricanes or Italy vs Scotland?

I'm still waiting for the hits Alberts and Deysel put in on Sar, or as we called it South African Representatives.

Scrum-half should be dropped and fined.

Looks like a man taking out frustration on not getting into or the chance to play for the SA rugby team out in one tackle.
