Chop’ them Lions Malakai Fekitoa

Anyone watch the Lions beat the Crusaders on the weekend?

While the Lions got all their points through Owen Farrell’s boot, they also won by stopping the Crusaders getting over their line for any tries. The Highlanders will be up against a staunch Lions defence at Forsyth Barr Stadium tonight. But they will be up for it, especially with Malakai Fekitoa running out in the starting team.

We Love Malakai Fekitoa here at LeslieRugby.

He recently showed us a fun tackling drill.  It’s all about teaching players to tackle low and safe when they are running at speed.

As well as Malakai low chop tackling the Lions, here are some other reasons why we think he’s going to be a big player tonight

 Kick returns – He’ll often find himself at the back and running back into broken defensive lines. That’s where h’s capable of stuff like this:
