Video: New Zealand Rugby Hit Knocks Outhalf Into Next Week With Huge Hit

Meet Seta Tamanivalu and Simon Hickey. Hickey is a 21-year-old dual-code talent in both cricket and rugby. He's already racked up 14 Super Rugby caps, and will be a name to watch in the race to replace Dan Carter as New Zealand's outhalf of the future.

This isn't a video about his skills. This video is about last year's ITM Cup player of the year Seta Tamanivalu. The beastly centre didn't get many chances for the Chiefs in Super Rugby last year, but it hasn't disheartened him playing for Taranaki against Hickey's Auckland.

Tamanivalu and Hickey both released that Auckland had a huge overlap after a turnover - and Tamanivalu decided to bite in and hit the ball carrier before he can get the ball off. And boy does he.

To paraphrase a former Sky Sports football pundit:

What a hit son, what a hit.
