The 5 Biggest Hits from round 17 of the Top 14

BY davidharper  ·  Monday Jan 30, 2017

While the excitement continues to build for the start of the Six Nations, there were some great contests and familiar names delivering powerful hits in France over the weekend. Here is a quick look at the best tackles from round 17 of the Top 14.

Thierry Dusatoir was among those handing out the punishment, as he showed he still has what it takes to deliver a serious blow.

Pierre Aguillon wasn’t in the mood for Matt Giteau’s dummy and sent the Aussie to the deck. 

And last but not least, Castres fullback Pierre Berard will probably want to have a chat with his fly-half about how NOT to deliver the ball when Nemani Nadolo has a clear shot at you.

After the flurry of amazing tries and great skill at the Wellington 7s, some big hits serve to balance things out nicely. Which is the best of the bunch?
