Samoan scrumhalf Kahn Fotuali’i, who recently signed a new deal to stay on at Bath, made this cracking hit on his opposite number at the weekend. Bath claimed a 26-21 win, and this tackle was one of the many highlights of the match, and even included a trademark Nigel Owens comment.
Fotuali’i flew off the line to smash Eric Escande, leaving him down on the turf in pain.
After some complaints came in from someone on the Toulon side, Owens responded with: “The tackle was fair.. Hey come on, you’re playing rugby remember.”
Well played all round.
