Ugo Monye dump tackle on Ben Blair

Ugo Monye dump tackle on Ben Blair

In case you missed it, here is a big hit by Ugo Monye on Ben Blair in the game between the Harlequins and the Cardiff Blues from Saturday.

Great tackle by the big winger on a flying Blair. Lifts him up and drives him down. Great technique.

The game was exciting, but ended 13-13 in the end. The silence in the crowd explained it all. Highly disappointing to play 80 mins of rugby and come up with a draw as the result.

Tackles like this are great to see though either way, especially when the attacking player is flying. I bet he regrets that little inside step though.

NOTE: We're aware that this video isn't available and are in the process of trying to get it back up. Please bare with us. Thanks.

Anyone else at this game? The referee gave Quins absolutely nothing when it came to the break down.Malone had a shocker with the boot, but it was Ugo who made the biggest mistake, which may have cost quins the game. I was pretty much level with him by the posts.. he took a great catch and mark, but the kick to touch was awful. Didn't have the distance, tried to kick it too far AND miskicked it. It hardly got past the 10m line! Simple run in try for the Blues who had the numbers. Ugo's got gas but can't kick for shit.

I like Monye... He has his flaws like everyone else, but every match he'll always do something notable... Whether it's diving around like goalkeeper, running through 5 guys with handoffs to go with it, or smashing someone to the floor... Very nice player to watchBut like the other guy said, his kickings pretty poor
