Video: Flipping amazing; this is how to avoid a tackle
We want Declan Kidney to have all the Irish rugby team practice this move. Could be a game changer.
The non-stop tackling and contact is what makes rugby such an attritional game. Injuries and general wear and tear just grinds players down over time, unless they are aliens like Brian O’Driscoll.
But one American football player in the US has found an easy (for him) way to avoid getting smashed when he had the ball in this practice session.
We really want to see Andrew Trimble, Tommy Bowe, even Mike Ross (okay, maybe not Mike Ross) pull this move against the Springboks. Make it happen Deccie.
