Up and coming Bath fly-half Orlando Bailey learned a very hard lesson in his side’s 26-13 win over London Irish. Poor technique in his tackle attempt on Albert Tuisue left him concussed and sprawled out on the field after just 26 minutes of play.
All credit to the fly-half who’s giving up several kgs to the much larger number 8. After the collision, Bailey unsurprisingly failed the HIA.

Bath were forced to shift Scotland international Cam Redpath to cover fly-half for the duration, and he proved more than adequate as Bath got the win and have now advanced to the semi-finals of the Challenge Cup in Europe.
