Last week we posted an awesome compilation from the French Top 14 that featured some of the of the best tries of the season, scored around the country in one of the most fascinating tournaments in rugby.
The video included some of the greatest moments of the 2008/2009 season, that was of course won by Perpignan against Clermont in the final.
Today we've got a follow up to that video, which features some of the biggest hits of the tournament. A few were featured here on RD, but the majority of which you probably wouldn't have seen before, which makes it a really enjoyable video to watch.
While many of the hits are probably on the wrong side of legality, there's a fair mix of textbook tackles that are also great to see.
Amongst other great tackles, we see Tana Umaga with a couple of crunchers from his comeback season, Freddie Michalak puts in a dangerous spear, and Dan Carter gets smashed by Juan Martin Hernandez.
