This Rugby Tackle Will Knock the Wind Out of Ya (Video)

rugby tackle

If you needed one more exhibit to go with the thousands of others to support the assertion that rugby players are the toughest bastards in the world…here you are.

This rugby tackle on Dave Tyrrell by Steve Matal is absolutely insane. I don’t think you could square up the circumstances any better to lay a guy out than this full-speed opportunity right here.

The video shows it all:

It’s hard to tell if this rugby tackle left the victim, Tyrrell, concussed. He seemed way out of sorts when he was on his back, but it would be even more odd if the rugby player looked calm, cool, and collect.

Congratulations to him for being on the receiving end of what even the announcers said was likely the hit of the year.
