Josua Tuisova blasts David Smith into next week

Toulon edged Castres in Top 14 playoff action over the weekend, with one of the biggest talking points from the match being when Toulon winger Josua Tuisova brutally ran over opposing winger David Smith.

Leigh Halfpenny also dominated, with the boot, helping Toulon to a 26-22 victory.

Just before half-time, Olympic gold medalist Tuisova took a pass from Mathieu Bastareaud at almost full-tilt. Tuisova gained full steam and former Toulon winger Smith never stood a chance.

His challenge did, however, seem to slow Tuisova enough to allow the rest of Smith's teammates to catch up for the tackle.

Tuisova is quickly getting a reputation as a monster of a runner and has even earned the nickname "Human Bulldozer". He's in good company too, with other brutes such as Bastareaud and Ma'a Nonu around him.

With such explosive power, these kind of carries are becoming a regular occurrence for him. He recently had an incredible few minutes that included a big tackle and two huge bump-offs against Bordeaux. You can see that in another video below this one.

As for Halfpenny, he scored 21 points - including a try - to help Toulon into a semi-final match against La Rochelle this Friday in Marseille.
