Mike Brown's sensational try saving tackle against Saracens

Reminiscent of the famous George Gregan try saving tackle on Jeff Wilson in 1994, Mike Brown tracked back with this excellent effort against Saracens on Friday. Duncan Taylor stepped Danny Care and looked certain to score before Brown’s spirited intervention.

It was one of the few highlights of their night, as Saracens thumped Quins 39-0, scoring three tries while Charlie Hodgson, Alex Goode and Owen Farrell kicked the rest of their points.

This tackle though, despite being part of a losing cause, is definitely worth sharing.

    Nitpicking much?

    if memory serves correct, Caucau denied Leinster not once but twice with that kind of tackle, possibly on BOD again. To be fair, BOD spent half that game winded on the left wing and threw up once or twice, I think it was a return game from one of his many injuries during that time period

    I've always thought that if you can't take the man's momentum, tackle the ball. Probably a bit of League influence there, but chasing the wing and 'chopping' the ball is more effective than a kidney cracker any day!
