Jordan Taufua beast mode against the Force and Kane Koteka

Friday night's meeting between the Crusaders and Force produced this brutal collision between forwards Jordan Taufua and Kane Koteka. The latter came away the worse of the two, forced from the field with injury as the Crusaders won 45-17.

With the Crusaders already leading 28-10 and on the attack from a line-out, Taufua received the ball in full stride and steamrolled Koteka.

The flanker looked to have taken a serious shot to the head from Taufua's shoulder that also forced an awkward landing. The drive did stall however, as fullback David Havili threw a no-look pass into touch.

It was probably little consolation, however, as Matt Hodgson had to be brought on to the replace the injured Koteka.

The final score line surely won't help things for the Force. They will now be playing the remainder of the season under a cloud of uncertainty as rumors continue to mount of their impending expulsion from Super Rugby.
