Cracking hit from Exeter Chiefs in their Aviva Premiership season opener versus Wasps at the Ricoh Arena, as Alec Hepburn flew off the line to perfectly time this crunching tackle on hooker Tommy Taylor, stopping him dead in his tracks.

As noted by Austin Healey, the long hair on both players certainly added to the magnitude of the tackle, as the two big front rowers met, with one coming off significantly worse than the other.

Edit: Taylor made a revenge shortly after this. Scroll down for a video on that.

    Mr Dump, With respect, I think this needs to be added to your intro write-up - this revenge tackle really *makes* the story for me.

    "Nothing wrong with that!" - except his head was the wrong side? Horrible technique.

    We were unaware of this. It must be to do with the new TV deals in place in the US. Frustrating but we'll try to get more clarity on it. For now, set up a VPN/Proxy and you can watch with ease.

    Ah yeh, totally agree, the rest of the world is pointless... only country that matters in the US right?
