THE FOLKS OVER at RaboDirect Pro12 headquarters have trawled through the best of their 2013 rugby footage to compile a video of the biggest hits.
Irish players feature in five of the top six hits, with Ulster’s Luke Marshall coming in for some hefty treatment twice. The thumping tackles do not include the blows shipped by Marshall on Ireland duty this year or the collision that saw him helped off the Twickenham pitch during Ulster’s Heineken Cup semi-final defeat to Saracens.
Go easy Mr Marshall. Go easy.
