You really don't want to get in this guys path when he's on the run. Tony Woodcock learnt that the hard way, thanks to Danie Rossouw and the fact that he was lingering aimlessly.
Butch James takes a long dropout that is taken by the All Black halfback Kelleher. He flips it to big Jerry who lines up the first thing he sees, which is Schalk Burger by the look of things... until Tony Woodcock (his own loose-head) is shoved into his running line by Springbok flanker Rossouw.
While this looks like dirty play, and it may well be, Rossouw was actually blocked from getting to Collins by Woodcock, albeit unintentional or not. The shove at the end was probably a little unnecessary though.
All in all, a massive collision, especially when seen live in real time.
