Jonny Wilkinson has always been a great tackler. Here is an awesome clip of him nailing the Irish winger Justin Bishop in the 2003 Six Nations Championship.
Wilkinson put in three good tackles in that sequence of play. One was a covering effort, one was head on, and the other was an awesome dumping tackle on Bishop.
Bizarrely enough these days that would be called a dump or dip tackle, and get him penalised and maybe even yellow carded. Back then though - great hit.
Have a look at Jonny's big hit on Emile Ntamack over here.
