Sergio Parisse 'rucking' technique will make the ball appear every time

South Africa overturned last year's shock loss to Italy with a convincing 35-6 win in Padova on Saturday. They turned to their traditional power up front, which paid dividends. Italy skipper Sergio Parisse never gave up though, getting stuck in at the breakdown, as can be seen here.

As giant second rower Lood de Jager lay over the ball after making a tackle, Parisse was not satisfied with the speed in which he was rolling away. So took things into his own hands.

In years gone by he would have had to use the boot to get the player to move, but he came up with something new, yet highly effective.

All it took was two slaps to the back, along with one that looked a bit like a closed fist.

Needless to say, the ball emerged pretty quickly after that. Who needs rucking.
