VIDEO: The ‘Art of the Chop Tackle’ video that is being hailed as the greatest ever
The chop tackle, AKA tackling some low, was famously invented by Dan Lydiate in the late 2000s, because no one ever tackled low before that.
Funnily enough, Rugby Onslaught remembers tackling low well before Lydiate invented the tackle, but that must be a false memory or something.
It’s important to remember the difference between a chop tackle and a grass cutter tackle, which is when you throw your body at a players legs with no attempt to wrap the arms. T
Anyway, this video of players tackling players low, sorry, we meant chop tackling, is very entertaining.
