Nemani Nadolo HUGE charge sends debutant flying and leads to great Crusaders try

Nemani Nadolo HUGE charge sends debutant flying and leads to great Crusaders try

The Crusaders beat the Blues 28-13 in a Super Rugby Round two match earlier today, with this try being the pick of them, set up by a sensational bit of play by giant Fijian, Nemani Nadolo. Here is a look at the try, and the massive bump-off by the big winger.

Nadolo sparked the try with a good catch and a casual swat away of flanker Blake Gibson before picking up a head of steam to barge into the attempted tackle of new Blues recruit, Matt Duffie.

Former NRL player Duffie went airborne, and after possession was recycled, the Crusaders linked up to score a classic try, with Read eventually diving over after a nice offload.

Last week we saw 130kg Nadolo bundled into touch by a far smaller man, but on this occasion there was no chance of that happening, as Duffie tried to simply put his body in the way, but the laws of physics said nope, we know better. Great try all in all.

    It's even better if you watch it at 50% speed, Justin's evil laugh as the poor lad goes flying. I'm not even sure what he was trying to do - looked like he was trying to get out of the way, not make a tackle

    All due respect to Duffie, but this clip makes me laugh every single time I watch it. To be honest, after looking pretty good last week, the Blues were almost comically bad at times in this match with more than one or two Keystone Cops moments in open play. This bit of slapstick was right in the spirit of things.

    Super rugby commentary is far better than anything we get in the NH. Barnes, Healey, Moore and Davies are all pretty insufferable. I'd love someone like Will Greenwood to commentate, he seems like a decent bloke with a good sense of humour as well as having great knowledge of the game.

    Ah... the convenient slip.... Sadly for me it tends to be an inconvenient slip caused by those sneaky pretty boys in the 10-15 shirts...

    I know a number of scrum halves who would also suit that name.

    Too big to tackle the big guy. Small man for the win!

    My bad.... It's Fukofuka, the new best name in the game!

    Fair play to the bloke for not slipping up before he got anywhere near Nadolo....
