WATCH: Tadhg Furlong makes David Pocock crumple like wet cardboard in ruck destruction
It may not have been immediately apparent but this cleanout from Tadhg Furlong was a glorious example of the props brute force at its absolute best.
Pocock, one of the hardest men in world rugby to budge once over the ball, is flattened by the flanker with seemingly relative ease
Speaking to The 42.ie Rob Kearney said: “he’s changing the role of tighthead props across the world.”
“There was one cleanout on Pocock in the second half that was the greatest cleanout I’ve ever seen, and I’ve seen a few cleanouts in my time.”
He also bagged a try just over ten minutes later.
