Young Michael Gunn cuts Wallaby Rod Davies in two with big tackle

While the Wallabies suffered a defeat to the Lions, they have plenty of talent waiting in the wings, as can be seen here in the Brisbane Premier Rugby Competition.

This short clip shows 18-year-old 2012 Australian Schoolboy Michael Gunn, playing for Easts Rugby Union Club, chopping down former Wallaby wing 'Rocket' Rod Davies.

It's a great tackle just as Davies attempts to glide through a non-existent gap, and as you can tell from the crowd's reaction, a fairly big moment as the young gun took out the Reds flyer.

[Note: Turn the volume down as it's pretty loud on the clip!]

Great hit, but I'll never watch the clip again due to the audio. It was like ear-rape!

Not enough recognition for this hit. It's perfect.
