What A Tackle! Isa Nacewa's Thumping Hit On Jeff Hassler

Leinster beat Ospreys 31-19 at the RDS on Friday night. It is a scoreline which does not do justice to Leinster's dominance.

The home side led 24-0 at half time and 31-0 less than ten minutes into the second half. Their foot was lifted from the gas and Ospreys came back into the game.

A pivotal moment in the match came 23 minutes into the first half with Leinster leading 10-0. Ospreys had a chance to get five points on the board. It looked a certainty too when Dan Biggar passed inside to Jeff Hassler. All the winger had to do was pop one to Sam Davies and the fullback was in. Isa Nacewa had other plans. The Leinster back nailed Hassler with a thumping tackle.

Ospreys went from a certain try to not scoring for another 30 minutes.
