Last week we looked at Six of the Best Tries scored in the 2014 Six Nations Championship, so today we’ve got this clip of the Six of the Best Biggest Hits and Tackles from last year’s tournament. There are a few in there that you’ll remember well, and some perhaps not as much. They’re all worth checking out, and should get you in the mood for the much anticipated kick off this Friday.

    That's why I called it an official release

    Yeah because u can't do that legally, dive at someone's knees with no attempt to wrap

    Esposito's tackle is number one for me. Great timing, great technique, stops the attack dead and wins a lineout for his side, what more to ask! BOD, and ireland in fact, indeed had the best at the end of the day by winning big time

    Huget was clearly a penalty try no attempt at arms as he had his back turned - A player must not charge or knock down an opponent carrying the ball without trying to grasp that player. Good NFL tackle though

    huget, halfpenny and williams techniques are clearly not 'textbook' by the way, the selection was made by rbs, no RD ;)

    Surprised these were official release, especially huget and halfpenny, horribly dangerous and terrible example for kids

    To be honest RD, I think this highlights reel was put together with a view of highlighting some wonderful play... Tsrb's; for me, has traditionally been about smashing the ****'s out of each other, with a few constructive tackles here and there (the ts in tsrb!!) Looking forward to it (:

    Well put Reality, couldn't agree more. Although after his recent antics, I admit to having quite enjoyed Huget putting his face in the way of some kneecaps...

    Kind of sick of seeing every compilation of big hits and tackles full of illegal tackles and crap technique. It's not hard to make a bit hit when you dive head-first into someone like Halfpenney, use your head to trip someone up like Huget or if you just smash someone with your shoulder like Scott Williams and make no attempt to legally tackle. Ashley Johnson recently tackled Dave Kearney in the air, which was a HUGE hit, but it wouldn't and shouldn't make it into a compilation of good hits, and neither should these examples. Bastareaud's is a demonstration of enormous power and Esposito and Trimble's are demonstrations of excellent technique. They should be 1, 2 and 3.

    Pretty sure in 1, 2 and 5, the tackler (or shoulder charger in the case of 5) left the field injured. Bodies on the line stuff.
