Lote Tuqiri Spear tackle on Richie McCaw

Finally got hold of the spear tackle on Richie McCaw. Insane that Tuqiri wasn't spotted doing it on the field. Also unbelievably that McCaw didn't have any serious injury from it. Then again, he is one of the toughest players out there.



  • Any New Zealanders out there still think Brian O'Driscoll was whinging?

  • you can be as hard as you want, a tackle like that is just plain outrageous, McCaw was lucky. just look at BOD...

  • Is there any footage of the hit before? Two spear tackles in a row. Stunning.

  • Have a cry pom people get speared and ya feel hard done by, its natural. But who was the guy that had a MASSIVE cry bout his spear tackle right at the same time as releasing an autobiography?

  • that spear tackle on O'Driscoll aweful and those new zealanders should have got punished in some way! nothing to be proud of

  • A spear tackle is illegal for a reason. It doesn't matter where you're from or who you play for, when someone hits you with one they could potentially paralyse or kill you. If that's not a reason to be agrieved, what is?

  • Tuquri is overrated. There is no place in rugby for tackles like that. Sure accidents are gonna happen and that should be allowed for but tuqiri did it out of spite. Tuqiri is a brat anyway, i wudnt give him 50$ to be in my team neva mind millions.

  • One rule for the Kiwis and one rule for the rest of the world. Kiwis spear tackle all the time but can't take it when they're played at their own game. If they don't like it they should have banned Umaga and friend after the BOD tackle.

  • how can you blame someone for being upset after they get dropped on their head? McCaw wasnt the one who took out BOD so stop having a go at him over it and dont try and tell me NZ was whinging about it didnt you hear McCaw after the game? all he said was that it was a scary moment. He didnt start having a go at tuquiri or anything. BOD made a far bigger deal over his tackle and he didnt even get dropped on his head

  • McCaw didn't get a dislocated shoulder, O'driscol did.

  • My dad nearly died cz of a dislocated collarbone that punctured his windpipe when he gt speared. Its nothin 2 laff about

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at September 16, 2007 4:22 pm  

  • Was there any retribution for Tuqiri? e.g. a ban?

    By Anonymous joe, at October 23, 2007 3:06 pm

  • got speared, torn ligaments in my shoulder, tried to play on, made it worse!!

    they hurt!!!

  • Haha its a laugh when its a Kiwi snapped you all hate the tackle. But when a Kiwi does a high tackle its "legit". This tackle is certainly a penalty, but it did look like he lifted him and lost control.

  • Milk it Richie. "One of the Toughest"?? Haha yep sure, milks it for 5 minutes. A tough player would of gotten up.
