Here is a compilation of some of the biggest tackles in rugby.Tackling is one of the most important technical aspects of a game of rugby.
It takes two to tackle, and while it's obviously important that you stop the other guy scoring a try, it's equally important that you both get up afterwards.
A high tackle is anywhere above the shoulders, and is absolutely against the laws of the game. Some players still try them, and in March 2014 an Australian rugby league player, Melbourne Storm prop Jordan McLean, was banned for seven weeks after being found guilty of committing a 'dangerous throw' tackle that left an opponent - Newcastle Knights forward Alex McKinnon - with a broken neck and the prospect of never being able to walk again.
Not only are low tackles more likely to be successful, they're also less likely to result in a broken neck.
