WATCH: Courtney Lawes colossal hit against Exeter Chiefs

England lock Courtney Lawes absolutely smashed Exeter Chiefs Tom Price under the lights at Franklin’s Gardens tonight.

In what was a closely contested match, Exeter held on for the narrow 22-19 victory.

Lawes, who made 10 tackles throughout the game, saved his best for the replacement flanker with a  earth-shuddering hit that would make you wince.


MAN OF THE MATCH: Tom Hendrickson

He really impressed in both attack and defence. The 26-year-old racked up a match-high 76 metres from 13 carries and also landed 11 tackles.
