Ulsterman Paddy Wallace put in this great hit on Wallaby center Berrick Barnes in the recent test between Ireland and Australia in Melbourne.
While Barnes was a little off balance after the kick and Wallace hit him from the side, the impact was pretty good and it looked great for the fan sitting at home in the comfort and safety of his armchair.
Wallace is listed as weighing roughly ten kilograms less than young Barnes. That fact alone makes the hit good to see as we love seeing the little guy step up and take on the bigger challenge. That said, Barnes only weighs 90kg's so he's no monster himself.
While the game took place a couple of weeks ago, this is one of the clips that we didn't manage to stick up at the time. We have plenty more on the way from games past and present, so stick around here on Rugbydump.
