Alesana Tuilagi's big charge and hit vs Gloucester

Alesana Tuilagi's big charge and hit vs Gloucester

One of the biggest matches of the Guinness Premiership weekend took place at Kingsholm on Sunday as Gloucester played host to Leicester in an entertaining game that was the first big run out for a lot of the players under the new laws.

There were two notable hits worth showing here, both coming from big Samoan wing Alesana Tuilagi, a crowd favourite whenever he has ball in hand. On this occasion he built up a head of steam in a short space of time and bashed the unfortunate Ryan Lamb out the way before offloading in the tackle brilliantly, almost setting up a try in the process.

Later on, while Tuilagi was receiving treatment on the sideline, Gloucester took a quick throw in, shifting play across to his wing. He managed to hobble back into position and put a cracking hit in on the dangerous James Simpson-Daniel as he offloaded, which was shortly followed by a nice defensive tackle from Tom Croft on Mike Tindall.

This clip also serves to show the excellent use of the new lineout law under the ELV's as Gloucester took that quick throw in. As the commentator notes, it only took two excellent long passes and suddenly they had yards of space to attack from.

It's not the first time we've seen Tuilagi involved in the big hitting stuff, so have a browse through our Related Posts if you enjoy seeing more of the same.

Ryan Lamb is a disgrace to the game of rugby union. In all my life i have never seen such a terrible number 10. I wouldnt put him in my grandsons under 12's team. Back in the day when i play fly half for minchinhampton he wouldnt of lasted two seconds on that pitch. When i came up aganist men the size of that tuilangi, i would put them on thee arses!Bring Back Brad Davies!!!
