Video: Just four minutes of massive rugby hits in super slow-mo
Somebody has gotten loads of big rugby hits - some legal, some illegal - and stuck them in one video. It’s teeth-shudderingly good.
While we wait for what promises to be a fairly exciting weekend of Heineken Cup action, let this video, lovingly put together by RugbyVidsOfficial on YouTube, remind you why you should be glad you are not a professional rugby player.
This collection of big hits in rugby contains more than its fair share of illegal hits, tip tackles, elbows and other things that probably saw the offender head to the bin for 10 minutes.
But as a compilation of just what kind of impacts happen in modern rugby around the world, it is pretty stark. Brutal, but compelling, viewing.
