Henry Tuilagi swats Zee Ngwenya away with big fend in Top 14

Henry Tuilagi was a popular figure in the crowd in Cardiff when Samoa beat Wales recently. Everyone loves seeing the Tuilagi brothers doing what they do best (except when facing them), so here is a quick clip of him in action that you may enjoy.

Still very much a beast of the modern game, Henry is now 36-years-old believe it or not. Playing for Perpignan against Biarritz a few weeks back he showed a glimpse of his explosive power – which all the Tuilagis seem to possess – as he sent Zee Ngwenya into orbit with a huge handoff.

In fairness, Ngwenya probably weighs less than Henry’s thigh, but it was still fun to watch.

    You are allowed to tackle someone off your feet...

    Actually, Ngwenya should have been penalized for that trip...off your feet = out of the game.

    So, mr Bosch, you are fine with tackling in The Rugby Championship (and doing a damn good job at it against the world's finest), but tackling Henry Tuilagi is where you draw the line? I can't say I blame you, I'd rather jump in front of a train than in front of Tuilagi

    Haha, again, as others have said, the second player was quite amusing. Looked like they both used that technique to try and swipe Tuilagi's fending arm... didn't work clearly. Can't fault Ngwenya for his efforts though, he still brought Tuilagi down! Great video, thanks RD!

    Haha, the second player is hilarious. Ngwenya did a better job from the ground than he did on his feet. Can't say I'd want to get in front of Henry, but if you're going to play international pro rugby, you gotta do better than that...

    Hardly much of a contest, but great to see none the less. Ngwenya actually does pretty well to keep his composure and stick his arms out to trip Tuilagi. Fair play to both of them.
