Stirling Mortlock big crash tackle on Louis Ludik

As the Australian commentary team have a chat with Julian Huxley on the sideline, Round 11 of the Super 14 unfolds with a high paced Brumbies vs Lions match-up. The hosts the Brumbies are in the race for a top four spot, while the Lions hopes for this season are long gone, as they sit at the bottom of the table.

Though the Joburg backs had a solid performance, scoring inside the first two minutes of the game with a double to Earl Rose later on, the big Australian centre Stirling Mortlock read this little move like a book and lined up the dangerous Louis Ludik then ate him for breakfast.

The Lions played exactly as you would expect, a team with nothing to lose, showing plenty of heart at times. As evident in this clip, however, heart doesn't count for much when someone like Mortlock lines you up.

Unfortunately, since there's a pitch-side interview going on at the time, we've been deprived of what surely would have been a chorus of hooting and hollering from the Australian commentators when Ludik got smashed, so you'll just have to pretend.

What we do have though is a cracking hit, and an interesting interview with Brumbies back Julian Huxley, who recently had brain surgery to remove a tumour.



  • HaHa!!! I had to pretend and I think it probably sounded like anyone else's imaginated commentary!! Lol...

    What a hit though!! Monster!! Reminds me of Brian Lima's Notorious tackle on Derick Hougaard!!

  • not much use ogf the left arm in the hit, only once ludik goes down. remeber butch james tackles like that, but as he wasnt an aussie they were shoulder charges.
