The only man to truly dominate Eben Etzebeth in a tackle

We can only remember one time that the powerhouse that is Eben Etzebeth has ever been truly physically dominated, and it’s by a man we surely all remember.

The lock was 21 when this video happened and we are sure that many will remember just how devastating this tackle was.

World Cup Winner Eben Etzebeth appears to be settling in well with Toulon as he made his move to France on a highly lucrative deal.

The South African lock who is 6’6 and weighs 125kg, has settled well into life in Toulon. Last weekend he had a man of the match performance for his new side.

Etzebeth was on sublime form against Clermont in December and he won the man of the match because of this performance. The World Cup winner moved to Toulon at the start of the month, moving from Super Rugby side the Stormers.

The Springbok lock was filmed partying with several All Blacks during the New Year…

6ft 7 lock Eben Etzebeth has made a name for himself in the sport as a hard-hitting man who will fight absolutely anyone, even the ref.

Eben Etzebeth has a certain reputation on the rugby pitch, and this video showcases exactly that, despite the fact that he got dominated. It was not long ago that Etzebeth was being considered as captain for the Springboks but now that Kolisi has taken that mantle, it appears that Etzebeth will not reign in that feisty anger of this.

So with a man who is so physically dominant in the sport, wh managed to dominate him. It’s none other than Australia captain and back row Michael Hooper…

Michael Hooper has been seen as the best thing to come out of Australia since John Eales in the forward pack…


Hooper was still very young at this age, but he certainly had the dog in him that has made him Australia captain today. This hit on Hooper may be seen by some as illegal, but it also was a timely reminder to Etzebeth that he could truly get dominated too…

Here is the famous hit that was made on Etzebeth.

Have you ever seen Etzebeth get hit like this?
