Former Wallaby Josh Valentine received this brutal knock in a Pro D2 game when he was hit head-on by Taiasina Tuifua. The big Samoan did something similar to Nicky Robinson in 2012, leading with his head in an upright tackling fashion that is clearly dangerous.
Valentine, now at Beziers, went off with concussion and stayed off as a precaution. No word on Lyon’s Tuifua or the punishment he may or may not have received. In all likelihood he probably got away with it, but it’s never nice to see these type of knocks take place.
