GIF - Ashley Johnson smashed against the Hurricanes in 2011

Big hit on Ashley Johnson

This is just a quick post to mention our Tumblr page, and to also show this cracking hit from a few years back. The tackle is on Ashley Johnson, now with London Wasps but formerly of the Cheetahs in South Africa. He's also been capped by the Springboks.

It's an animated gif, so for those of you not familiar with the format, it's an image so has no audio or navigation controls. That's okay because it's loops infinitely which means it's quite hypnotizing to watch. Gif's are also a great way to share short clips via platforms such as Tumblr.

Which brings us to the new page - you can view it at

If you use the platform, please let us know by giving us a follow, reblog, etc on there. If you post regular rugby content yourself, RD will no doubt return the favour.

We'll probably have a few more random posts like this in future, because as said above, it's a nice and easy way to share a quick bit of action with you. If you ever come across anything interesting yourself, feel free to submit it via Tumblr or get in touch via our contact page and we'll share it.
