Prop Naama Leleimalefaga makes a crunching tackle on fellow front rower Joe Marler

You don’t often see props being smashed backwards, so when it happened to Harlequins loosehead Joe Marler it was no surprise that it was another huge man that dished it out, Worcester Warriors powerhouse Naama Leleimalefaga.

While it’s certainly not the biggest tackle we’ve ever seen or posted, it was nice to see the prop on prop action, with one large individual dominating another.

It reminds us of a HUGE collision you may have missed midway through last year, when two giant forwards collided in the Polish Cup Final. That one is well worth checking out.

On this occasion Marler got the short ball and before being able to build up a head of steam, hefty Samoan Leleimalefaga came in on the angle and crunched him.

Marler is of course a decent tackler himself – remember this hit on George North?

He’s also a bit of a comedian, and has appeared on – and visits – RD fairly often, so if you fancy watching some of his finer moments, we’ve included those in the Related Posts below the video.
