Being hit by a 129kg All Black isn’t fun. Bernard Foley learned that the hard way in the third Bledisloe encounter this past weekend.
After the Wallabies made ground up the field, Foley spotted a gap close to the breakdown and threw himself at the line. The gap closed… and it closed quickly as Ofa Tu-Ungafasi absolutely crushed him in an bone-crunching tackle.
Credit to Foley — he did manage to get up, however there’s no doubt he was felt that one in the morning. The aching will be worth it though, given that the Wallabies went on to win the game 23-18.
