From Jonny Wilkinson drop-goal to Carlos Spencer’s through-the-legs pass against the Boks in the 2003 edition, to Jonah Lomu’s job on Mike Catt in 1995 right here on home soil – the list goes on.

The game’s most exciting point is arguably tries: people love to see them scored… but there’s another exciting aspect of the game that’s just as important: the tackle.

There’s been great tries scored in the World Cup over the years and there have been memorable hits as well…just as the videos below depict.

Enjoy some bone-crunching hits from World Cups past, and arguably the biggest hit in the game’s history.

Lookout for the last comment on the second video. – @SabeloBoksburg
