This is one of the best rugby tackles of the last decade.

Any rugby match between Australia and South Africa is an emotional affair, and another chapter was written in the books of this rivalry with a legendary tackle from Marika Koroibete.

Australia was locked in a tight battle with South Africa in the rugby championship over the weekend when it looked like the Springboks were destined to score. Makazole Mapimpi received a pass down the flank and, despite the defenders closing in, he felt academic: he was diving for the corner, planning the ball and scoring.

No one could have expected Koroibete to not only make contact, but destroy Mapimpi with a tackle that polarized rugby. Some love success and say more physicality is needed in rugby to boost the popularity of the game, particularly in the United States. while others call it limit illegally. The reason for the criticism is that this was not a traditional wraparound rugby tackle, but could instead be seen as a “cannonball tackle”, which is defined as hitting the legs while other defenders hold an opponent in position. vertical.

Even staunch critics point out that the speed with which the tackle was made would make it difficult for Koroibete to stop in time, so the pearl hanging on whether it should have been a penalty or not is a bit silly. What we do know is that this is one of the most shocking hits we’ve seen in a long time, and it’s beautiful.
