Sebastien Chabal big tackle on Sisa Koyamaibole

Since the weekend, we've received more than a few requests for a tackle that Sebastien Chabal put in against the Pacific Islanders on Saturday.

The Caveman picked up and drove back big Fijian number eight Sisa Koyamaibole as he charged ahead. Chabal is known for putting in the occasional storming run or crunching hit, and as far as textbook tackles go, this was one of the best we've seen from the enigmatic Frenchman.

Always popular with the fans, and one of the most recognisible faces of the Rugby World Cup last year, Chabal's form and fitness on the field has never appeared to be quite as consistent as the hype surrounding him off it.

He has however, been named in the French side to take on Australia this weekend and is determined as ever to prove that he is worthy of a regular place in the team.

He was annoyed with media earlier today after it was insinuated that he was selected because of pressure from the fans, not for his ability to last a full match.

"You always ask the same questions. It's not funny," said the bearded one.

"You forget I'm also a club player and play some 30 games for the full 80 minutes each season, even if international rugby is played at a higher level. This is not the issue.

"To form a good back row you need ... a cart horse. At Sale I'm the cart horse, I bring power and aggression and they love it."

Chabal will be one to watch yet again this weekend as France host Australia in another highly anticipated end of year Test match.

Note: The video and account it was on was removed for some reason. It is back up now though.

  • Nooooooooooo. I saw that on tv, was an amazing hit. Can you please get it back up here? Effin Mediazone...

    The Pacific Islanders No. 8 was a beast during that game though, no questions asked. Everytime he did an 8 man pick they gained approx. 10 metres.

  • Whose copyright infringment?

    Super14 -- Mediazone -- understood, as they own the rights and show the games.

    France vs Pacific Islanders?
    I subscribe to Mediazone, and they don't even offer the game as a purchase option.

    Would be a total dick move if they are assert a claim on something they won't show.

  • I don't think this was Mediazone's doing, but leave it to a dick to pull a dick move.

    Thanks, Jule, for the link to the French version.

  • Not that great - seen better. Chabal highly over rated.

    By Anonymous Just a Fan, at November 21, 2008 9:43 am  

  • sick of all the bastards who just cant appreciate a good moment of rugby by criticizing the player or whatever. just a fan you're a cunt

    By Anonymous tehsniper, at November 22, 2008 11:04 am  

  • sick of the people overrating chabal, but sicker of those downplaying such a tackle. "seen better"... seen better than rocking over a 260 lbs islander running at full speed? well then get RD to put the video on, quick I wanna see that!!!

    By Anonymous piaruskov, at November 22, 2008 5:12 pm  

  • agreed 100% tehsniper and piaruskov....

    i cant believe people downplay such a tackle... i mean, we all know chabal is overrated, but at the same time, stopping a 120kilo man a full pelt is something damn considerable indeed, fair play to chabal, and great stop.... like a brick wall!

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at November 25, 2008 6:28 pm  

  • chabal = monster. great for the game! needs to work on his hands tho. love to see him up against the beast!
