Tana Umaga hits hard, then sets up Jerry Collins for the try

Tana Umaga hits hard, then sets up Jerry Collins for the try


With Tana Umaga making his return to the playing field recently at Toulon, there’s been renewed interest around the world from people wondering how he’s getting on at the ripe old age of thirty five.

An All Black legend, Umaga coached at Toulon before making the decision to pull on the boots again and see if he can turn his side’s fortunes around.

While you can’t attribute success to one player in particular, he’s done well since making his comeback, and Toulon are now looking safe from relegation so are set to spend another year in the Top 14 in France.

A few weeks ago when Toulon played Montabaun Umaga made this huge hit on lock

Mathias Rolland. The referee penalised Umaga, saying he didn’t use his arms in the tackle. You be the judge of that.

Montauban kicked over the resultant penalty, but then from the kickoff, Umaga got his hands on the ball and set up fellow All Black Jerry Collins, who sprinted over for a great try.

It was an awesome sequence of play as Umaga, who clearly felt hard done by after his hit, got the final say by setting up the try, and later, winning the match 33-20.
