Stunning new compilation is definitive proof that Jacques Burger is the hardest man ever to have played rugby
A stunning new compilation on Saracens and Namibia flanker Jacques Burger is all but definitive proof that he is the hardest man to have ever played rugby.
A talented videomaker called Rugby Jubbly put together this fantastic video called ‘Jacques Burger – Rugby’s Hardest Ever Hitter’.
Burger was known for producing some of the best tackles in rugby history. He was famous not only because of the size of the hits, but also because of the fact that he almost never did an illegal tackle.
His tackling exploits came at a price, however, as he suffered a whole host of different injuries because of it.
In the highlight video, the former Saracens star is seen making bone-crunching tackles on players in the Gallagher Premiership, with some hits leaving the players around him at a loss for words.
His grizzly image and non-stop work rate earned him one of the most iconic reputations in rugby history, with fans often naming him as the best tackler to have ever played rugby.
Fans were gushing over how good his hits were in the comments section of the video, saying.
- And he led with his shoulders, wrapped his arms and crushed both the smaller and larger opposition.
- This video gets a 👍 for the clip of him giving Bakkies a taste of his own medicine….haha…. Bakkies didn’t like that.Plz
- Excuse me if im way off here – I’m an American who just recently started getting into Rugby. Fair to say this guy plays the game right – and is a real “tough” player — unlike a Botha, who is just a dirty bum?
Just look at some of his hits in this insane compilation! True warrior grit with some of these challenges!
