Stirling Mortlock hit on Sonny Bill Williams - Thats the way the big boys do it

We've had a number of requests for this bone-jarring hit from the Barbarians match against the Wallabies in Sydney a few weeks back.

As always, Sonny Bill Williams making an appearance in a big rugby union match was surrounded by hype and speculation. Many people questioned his ability, and he no doubt was a prized target for the opposition players.

Stirling Mortlock chopped the League superstar down to size early on with this great tackle.

At the end of the match Sonny Bill apparently thanked Mortlock for the sore ribs, to which the Wallaby captain replied "That's the way the big boys do it. "

"He seems like a good bloke and a very funny character," Williams said later. "But I'd love to come back here in a few years' time and show him how I do it."

"I know I am going to have my critics and they are going to come out and bag me but I know that there is definitely a lot of improvement in my game and hopefully in another 10 months you will see a different player."

"I knew there was a lot of pressure on me and I knew that a lot of people wanted to see me get pumped but that's cool," he said.

Williams did show a few touches of class, even getting the better of Mortlock on a couple of occasions, but it was the Aussie center who came out on top overall.

  • nice hospital pass :)

    mortlock would've done that to anyone in the same position.

    Actually so would SBW if he was defending lol.

  • nice tackle, would have been better if he'd managed to hurt him, SBW was smiling after!

  • He knew he got smaaaashed when he got up. He is solid but Mortlock would eat him alive. Id like to see them go at it in the ring. SBW fancies himself as a boxer! Now that would be worth seeing.

  • in french we said "bof"

    it's a good tackle but every center would have done the same after this suicidal pass

  • Thought SBW actually dealt with it well - and dealt with his night well.

    Really seemed to enjoy himself. And took his stripes with good humour.

    Mortlock a legend!!!

  • like the hit, and like the exchange after.

    so much nicer than the typical rugby league video clip where the guy stands over top of the player.

  • "That's the way the big boys do it. "

    Wat a f**kin gimp.

    Hospital ball from McCallister leaves Williams open to a tackle as he has to catch it high leaving the mid rift open to a wrap.

    Technically good tackle thats about it.

    Williams even gets up without a bother.

    Jamie Roberts showed Mortlock how the big boys do it last autumn when he fracturd his skull in a head clash with him and played for an extra 15 minutes while Mortlock wimped off straight away.

    "That's the way the big boys do it. "

    Typical Aus arrogant nonsense

  • I think everyone's overstated the happenings of SBW and how everyone has a grduge against him.

    I doubt Mortlock had any ill intent.

    And would you really call one of the most influential players in current rugby a wimp?

    By Anonymous Phil, at June 26, 2009 3:31 pm  

  • Mortlock is a legend seriously. Can u imagine mortlock with umaga

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at June 26, 2009 3:36 pm  

  • Im starting to like SBW. He seems like a damn good fella.

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at June 26, 2009 3:39 pm  

  • let me reiterate Mortlock is not a wimp id prob have been out cold after said head clash but i dont go around telling my opponents "this is how we do it with the BIG BOYS" everytime i catch them eith a tackle.

    He just sounded like a total gimp.

    But i dont know him personnally so he could be the coolest bloke around for all i know.

    Just my opinion which is always open to scrutiny.

  • "the scary thing is, it might not have hurt him at all" xD
    freaking legend ^^

    no im not drunk yet but im Irish so you can count on it later, i have a match first and after i will get o b l i t e r a t e d!!

    The Irishness also explains my bad english, if you want i can just comment in gaeilge which is no problem, but i think the mispelled english is a bit easier for everyone to understand than the Gaeilge!!

    By Blogger Kenny, at June 26, 2009 3:55 pm  

  • Well, it was a hospital pass. Reminded me of the same kind of pass to Matt Rogers from Roff in 2003 when he got ball and Josh Lewsey at the same time.

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at June 26, 2009 4:45 pm  

  • Anonymous said 'Im starting to like SBW. He seems like a damn good fella.' He walked out on his team and moved to France without telling anyone even though he was contracted, because the French team offered him more money. In my book that's absolutely disgraceful.

    By Anonymous Kearney for tests, at June 26, 2009 6:45 pm  

  • That's how the big boys do it? LOL.

    Sonny has had bigger hits like that on many occasions. And he's certainly put on bigger hits than that.

    Mortlock is lucky the roles weren't reversed, and he wasn't in Sonnys position while playing against him in a League game. Because he'd really know what a hit was if that were to happen.

    Text book tackle in the face of a hospital pass. Nothing special.

  • Fair play to Sonny Bill, it was a hospital pass and he took it.
    I'm sure it was a smile out of bitterness.
    Good hit

  • When Mortlock said 'that's how the big boys do it', he would have been joking.
    He's an Aussie, he doesn't take much of anything seriously, unlike some people (Hey Kenny, way to reinforce the stereotype of whinging Irish).

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at June 27, 2009 6:50 am  

  • NO i dnt hink sbw will ever play for the all blacks,look whos playing there now,he's nowhere near as good as nonu and smith or mcallister or toeava.he is young tho and will improve..

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at June 27, 2009 8:16 am  

  • Textbook tackle.

    What's with Kenny comparing this tackle to an accidental head clash 'last autumn'? Get a sense of humour mate. Mortlock clearly has one.

    Ok im a whinger but i have post of the century and im also a legend, so now i too, like stirling mortlock can tackle people and then say

    Just cause youv played rugby for a fair few years doesnt mean you go spitting out BS to all and sundry when you tackle them.

  • Whatever Kenny, I know the Irish, and you're a bunch of moaners.
    Never happier than when you're miserable about soemthing.
    And he was joking, it's called sarcasm. HE was being self depricating, something the Irish don't do. Real good a taking the piss ou of other people, not good at taking the piss out of themselves. Aussies are the opposite.

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at July 02, 2009 2:25 am  

  • Would rather see a head to head highlight package than one tackle from a hospital pass.... SBW got the better of stirling several times, it was a great contest. SBW allblack no. 13 for the next world cup.

    "And he was joking, it's called sarcasm. HE was being self depricating, something the Irish don't do."

    Holy sh*t, you know me better than me.
    And you dont sound arrogant generalising ever single person from Ireland at all.

    Didnt know my 2 year old son who is Irish couldnt self depriciate, but thanks for telling me and everyone over here in ireland that we are moans unlike all the Aussies who seem to know more about my country than I do. I am not having a go at Aussies by the way, just going on what you said.

    Congratulations on sounding like a complete Idiot just like your legend mortlock.

    Maybe you can also show me how the big boys do it!!!

    Oh no!! I was sarcastic by accident, and you said we Irish cant be sarcastic or self depreciating.

    Moron. (non sarcastic/depreciating)

    Cuz it was a joke, one he got, but you didn';t.

    Yeah the jokes so hilarious!!!this is how the big boys do it

    gets funnier every time

    Hilarious Tim you must crack some funny ones if you think that one was funny, cause if you ask me its about as funny as cancer.

  • "That's how the big boys do it"

    Let's see him try do it to SBW while SBW is running straight at him (and not in the air catching a hospital pass (one of many on the night) by Macalister.....

    And we all know what will happen if Mortlock tried to run it straight to SBW... He'd really find out how the big boys doooze it, Samoan style.

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at July 07, 2010 4:50 am  

  • Mortlock is stupid for saying that to Sonny Bill..... because everyone knows that SBW is famous for smashing people....

    Can't wait to see the next time they play against each other.
