Yet ANOTHER shocking tackle in the Under 20s World Championships by callous All Blacks
This was a truly shocking tackle.
What is it with these high tackles in this tournament. It seems like nobody is safe. It will be interesting to see if these tackles have an affect on the officiating of the World Cup, because we’re going to see a lot of injuries and tackles at this rate if they do not act quick.
No surprises that the All Blacks were involved here in this tackle.
