Nemani Nadolo sends George Furbank into the dirt with trademark big hit

137kg winger Nemani Nadolo has an insatiable appetite when it comes to hitting smaller backs.

Yet another big hit on George Furbank today perfectly displays the danger that the Fijian powerhouse poses if you get in his way.

The hit even ended up as a try assist as the Saints fullbacks wayward pass fell into the hands of Ben Youngs to walk in for the try on his 250th appearances.

Nadolo was awarded the man of the match award as Tigers went onto record only a second win in seven matches since the Premiership resumed as they overcame their lacklustre rivals 28-24 at Welford Road.
