Another busy rugby weekend has come and gone so before sorting through the chaos, here’s a short clip that was submitted via the forum, and features veteran Tony Brown taking a big tackle against the Waratahs.

Yes, if you didn’t know it before, Tony Brown is still playing professional rugby. The 18 times capped All Black has had a bit of a rugby journey, playing in Japan and South Africa before returning to Otago to continue plying his trade for his beloved Highlanders.

Now 36 years old, he’s actually already been named in a Classic All Blacks team, to play against a Classic France team in Queenstown in September. This weekend though he was was picked to start against the Waratahs as Lima Sapoaga is doing duty for the Baby Blacks at the Junior World Championships in Italy.

Things didn’t go too well for Brown, who was not only on the end of a 33-7 hiding from the Sydney side, but also took this hefty tackle from ‘Tahs back Atieli Pakalani, winding him quite badly and leaving him on the ground to recover for a minute or two.

Regardless of the result, and of him being smashed here, it’s great to see guys like Brown, Tana Umaga, and Chris Jack, all having good seasons and continuing to perform well into their thirties.

If you spotted anything this past weekend that you think is worth featuring here on RD, give us a shout by tweeting, posting a message on the Facebook Page, or dropping us an email. Hope it’s been a good one either way. Cheers
