Five minute video of BRUTAL red card tackles is hard not to watch

YouTuber Andrew Forde has put together a stomach-turning compilation of some of the nastiest tackles in rugby history.

The five-minute montage features endless clothes-line tackles by some of the game’s biggest stars which will leave most rugby fans cringing.

The first tackle in the video comes courtesy of Samoan legend Alesana Tuilagi with a huge high shot on former Springboks captain Jean de Villiers back in 2013.

Other noteworthy challenges include Owen Farrell’s blind shot on Charlie Atkinson last year which hit headlines across the rugby world and cost the England captain a five-week ban.

Farrell accepted the charge and independent panel chair Mike Hamlin said: “It was accepted by the RFU, the player and the panel that the offending was reckless and not intentional.

“This was a totally unacceptable contact with the neck/head of Atkinson as a result of a reckless tackle which had the consequences of him being knocked unconscious and sustaining a concussion.

“This resulted in the panel concluding that this was a top end offence with an entry point of 10 matches. There were no aggravating features.”

Shortly after the incident, Wasps head coach Lee Blackett said: “You know Owen, he is physical but he didn’t mean it. You could see instantly afterwards and unfortunately Owen got that one wrong.

“We know Owen is not that type of player – he plays on the edge but genuinely never goes over that edge. He got that slightly wrong.”

Nearly every tackle in the video is worthy of a red card and some of the nastiest-looking challenges come from players being taken out in the air and landing awkwardly on their heads.

Other huge stars including All Backs great Dan Carter, Ireland legend Brian O’Driscoll and maverick Gavin Henson make appearances in the video making it a great watch from start to finish.
