Ranking 6 of the greatest England tackles ever made

2. Courtney Lawes vs Jules Plisson

The second-row makes a huge tackle on France outhalf Jules Plisson just as he passes the ball during the 2015 Six Nations.

England’s renowned enforcer timed his hit to perfection – or illegally hit the France fly-half late, depending how you look at it – during the incredible 55-35 Six Nations victory at Twickenham. 

1. Josh Lewsey vs. Mat Rogers

Rogers magnanimously said of the bosh: “That one was like getting run over. I think that hit will take the crown as the biggest ever. I just remember lying there writhing in pain, unable to breathe… It left me with broken ribs… I guess Josh taught me a hard lesson.”
