Watch: Irish Sevens' Player Victim Of Vicious Rib-Busting Tackle

Watch: Irish Sevens' Player Victim Of Vicious Rib-Busting Tackle
By Conor O'Leary

We can feel that one, and hear that one all the way up here in the commentary box.

The biggest hits in rugby are the ones you can hear before the entire crowd flinches in empathetic pain.

This one shipped by Ireland's Stacey Flood certainly counts as that. Taking a hospital pass from Mulhall - Flood is almost simultaneously smashed by France's Majorie Mayans in a crunching hit.

You hear the collision, the groans, and then the illustrations from Hugh Cahill as Flood lies in agony on the ground:

Worse for Ireland was that France managed to turn it into a turnover, and scored a try from centre-field directly from the resulting ruck.

There are unconfirmed reports that Flood is still down in a heap on the ground - and you can't blame her.

In all seriousness though, it was a textbook tackle from Mayans and Flood showed brilliant courage to come back into the game. Have to respect both players for that.
