My favourite tackle was the hit Butch James put on Mortlock last year in Tri Nations!!!! HUGE!!!!! Mortlock running at fall pace and Butch smacked him backwards!

Thought Gregan on Rokokoko this year was technically excellent.

The entire Munster pack on Chabal (playing for Sale) in Thomand park. Was it two years ago?

As a match changing tackle i can think of two in club rugby.



Rodber on Tuigimala in the Tetley's cup ('98 i think). Stopped a big guy in his tracks, changed the game and put saints on their way to beating the champions elect.



Tuilagi on some poor Swansea centre in a HC quarter final. It was two minutes in and the Welsh player got well and truly mullered. the real impact was that for the rest of the match none of the Swansea outside backs could catch the ball for the rest of the match if a big samoan was anywhere nearby.



in International: you'll go a long way before finding a more perfect textbook tackle than Wilkinson v Ntamack in Paris. Was that the last time England won there?

One of my favourite tackles was the Colloins hit in Chabal and the one that Chabal did to New Zealand.

Lewsey on De Villiers:

Bet Hodgson breathed a sigh of relief after that.

And, of course, little Georgie Gregan on Jeff Wilson:

Oh, and how do you guys post those youtube vids as if they're embedded into the post ?
[/b]

On the youtube page for each vid, you'll see there's an 'embed video' link (unless the video's owner has disabled it). Copy the URL. Then, select HTML On from the drop down menu under the posting window and paste the URL into your post.

Jonah Lomu crunched Shane Howarth in half in an All Blacks trial match years ago

Sam Tuitupou's hit on Brad Thorn was good too

Hey everyone.

I'm new to these forums, but I thought I'd be bold and share my opinion right away. All the tackles mentioned so far are brilliant, without a doubt. I hope I get this embed thing right...have never done it, really.

I especially love the third one. Ben Tune just gets plastered. The second one is fairly epic as well, who said Jonah Lomu couldn't tackle?

Butch James, using his arms:

One you may not have seen, from the '05 Lions tour match against Taranaki. Decent tackle.

And the 'softer' side of Sevens rugby. Todd Clever of the U.S.A.

These are all my vids, so excuse the lack of variety. I just was recalling some of the big hits I had posted. I'm the Try Savers and Rib Breakers guy, by the way :D

My favourite tackle is Jerry Collins on Thinus Delport in the '03 RWC.

The best tackle I have ever seen (even as painful remembering as it is) is Georege Gregan's try saver on Jeff Wilson in the Bledisloe (1994 I think it was).
