There are two kinds of rugby player…

Anyone that’s played any bit of rugby over the years will know all about one-on-one tackling drills and the different approaches the attacking player can take. Some guys like to the direct route, others like to use a bit of footwork.

In the video below a young rugby player suffers the consequences with the ball-carrier taking the direct approach, absolutely bumping him off into next week. He did however get a shot at redemption and boy did he take it.

Instead of going direct, he makes an absolute fool of the defender with some outrageous footwork. Who did it better?
