Krisanski- Kennedy was clearly shaken up on the play but doesn’t appear to have suffered any major injuries.   Source: Bleacher Report The post Monstrous Rugby Hit appeared first on Viral Sports Hub.

WATCH: Rugby match turns in 30-man brawl

The knock on baseball brawls is that, more often than not, they end up being nothing more than a bunch of guys in pajama pants, standing around and lightly shoving each other. You won’t hear any such complaints about this rugby fight. During a match between two Georgian clubs (the country, not the state), a wild melee broke out after one player (No. 23 in yellow) gave an opposing...

That wasn't a ferocious pack of wild animals on a rugby field in south England on Monday. It was just a few members of the Exeter Chiefs rugby team channeling their inner beast with a little help from a make-up crew. The sight of a zebra, cheetah, mandrill and gazelle scrumming for the ball was nothing less than bizarre, but it was all in a days work for four players from...

Rugby player delivers spectacularly vicious hit

Here’s a video clip from the Northampton – Bedford friendly rugby match in England last weekend. That freight train of pain comes via the 6’5″, 260-pound Courtney Lawes of Northampton.

The speedy streaker took off and had a decent run going until Warriors strength and conditioning coach (and former player) Ruben Wiki tackled him from behind.

Rugby players are hulking men who are some of the toughest S.O.B.s on the planet because the game itself is a rough and tumble affair with players wearing not a stitch of protective clothing.
