Tighthead vs Tighthead as props Kieran Brookes and David Wilson collide

Tighthead vs Tighthead as props Kieran Brookes and David Wilson collide

We’ve seen a few seismic collisions over the years and this one between two of the biggest props in the game was epic. Clearly Northampton Saints tighthead Kieran Brookes got the better of it, and Bath’s David Wilson might reconsider his approach, as it simply won’t work on such a big man!

Technically Wilson probably should have been penalised for not using his arms in the tackle, but perhaps because he had just been so clinically dominated, the referee showed some pity.

    Wilson showed No attempt to grasp, as per Law 10.4 (g), he led with his shoulder first (aka a unsucessful shoulder charge) (g) Dangerous charging. A player must not charge or knock down an opponent carrying the ball without trying to grasp that player. Sanction: Penalty kick his poor success rewards his foul play !

    Horrible technique, he deserved it - said the none pro to the pro... But look at his left arm, it's inboard of Brookes and it's put him in a rugby league barging sort of position.

    Did Barnes call a knock on, to end the phase? Looked like a very obvious tackle off the ball on a player attempting an intercept, to me
