Benson Stanley demolishes Yoann Huget with biggest hit of the year

Benson Stanley demolishes Yoann Huget with biggest hit of the year

Benson Stanley made arguably the biggest hit of the new year when he smashed Yoann Huget with a great tackle at the Stade Ernest Wallon on Sunday. Toulouse went on to beat the Top 14 leaders 19-12 as they maintained their excellent home record.

Toulouse have won all nine home games this season but have a poor away record, losing all of their seven matches on the road. They are up to fourth on the overall log now, while Clermont remain top with their losing bonus point.

“It’s good to beat the leaders Clermont during this period where we weren’t playing very good rugby,” said Toulouse captain Thierry Dusautoir.

“That gives us a boost before the visit of Saracens (in the Heineken Cup this coming weekend).”

Benson Stanley, who forged a reputation for himself as a big hitter when still playing in New Zealand, made another trademark crunching tackle as he smashed Huget, who in fairness received the ball on a hiding to nothing.

Stanley is the smaller of the two players so as with Sam Tuitupou’s hit in the previous post, it was nice to see good tackling technique prevail. It was also good to see no TMO intervention, as has become the norm these days when a dominant tackle is made.
