Elsom and Palu gang tackle sends Elhorga packing

French fullback Pepito Elhorga will be missing out on the second test against the Wallabies this coming weekend after damaging his shoulder in a heavy tackle from powerful Australian loose forwards Rocky Elsom and Wycliff Palu.

It’s safe to say that Elhorga will be regretting running into arguably the two toughest Wallabies on the field, and two of the harder backrowers in world rugby.

He came off emphatically second best, getting gang tackled and dumped to the ground, bone crushingly so in that his right shoulder was dislocated on impact.

French coach Lievremont will now be forced to make a change at fullback as Elhorga will, understandably, take no further part in the tour after this crunching tackle where we see two huge men flatten a little guy.
