ICYMI: Billy Twelvetrees was felled by this crunching hit by Samu Manoa at the weekend

We wouldn’t be surprised if Twelvetrees’ bones are still shaking after this. Ouch.

As well as being on the receiving end of a hit like that, Gloucester got hammered 53-6 so it turned out to be one of those nights for Billy ‘36’ Twelvetrees, but he’s not the only one to have felt the force of Manoa in the recent past, isn’t that right, Peter O’Mahony?
