This is one of the greatest rugby games of the past decade

Any rugby match between Australia and South Africa is an emotional drama, and this confrontation with Marika Koroibete’s legendary tackle has written another chapter .

Australia are locked into a tight battle with South Africa in the weekend rugby championship and it looks like the Springboks are destined to score. Makazole Mapimpi received the pass on the wing and, despite the defenders, felt academic – he would run to the corner, press the ball down and score.

No one could have imagined that Koroibete wouldn’t just make touches but wipe out Mapimpi with a tackle that polarized rugby. Some like the hit, saying rugby needs more physicality to boost the game’s popularity — especially in the US, while others call it illegal. The reason for the criticism is that this is not a traditional football tackle, but can be considered a “cannonball tackle,” which is defined as a hit in the leg when an opponent is held upright by another defender.

Even staunch critics have pointed out that the speed of tackles will make it difficult for Coroibette to pull up in time, so this pearl is tight as to whether the penalty should be taken hold on tight. Kind of silly. What we do know is that it’s one of the most influential hits we’ve seen in a long time, and it’s beautiful.
