A video shared online has attracted a lot of attention recently due to the manner and location of a series of tackling ‘drills’ involving school children.

At first watch this video seems like a lot of fun, practicing tackling technique whilst enjoying the refreshing splash of the pool.

These kids are shown throwing themselves into huge tackles on top of what appears to be a makeshift ramp as they both crash down into the pool, as the crowd appears to be enjoying the mammoth hits standing there in their blazers in anticipation of the next big challenger to take to the stand.

Whilst the video has been enjoyed by over 10,000 people, there have been some that have questioned the safety of such an activity.

One such person sarcastically commented, “Getting winded falling into water is a boss idea”. Whilst another compared the final tackle to ones we’ve seen recently on the international stage, “The last tackle was very dangerous, it’s similar to Owen Farrell”.

Others were more jovial about the video, with one person suggesting that they themselves need to get a ramp by the pool now.
