This recent tackle, by young Benson Stanley on Rico Gear, isn’t necessarily the biggest or most spectacular hit you’ll ever see. What it is however, is pretty much technically perfect.
Stanley runs in from far and demolishes All Black Gear, hitting him hard in the midriff and effectively knocking the wind out of him.
The tackle was perfectly timed, forcing Gear to take some time out to regain his bearings and suck some oxygen back into his lungs.
Just goes to show the youngsters out there, you don’t have to be a big guy to make devastating tackles.
