You're about to watch one of the best rugby tackles you will ever see. 


Once upon a time at Northgate Mall in Johannesburg, shoppers were quietly going about their business.

All of a sudden, a man appeared from nowhere.

He was running away from security guards because he had just stolen three cellphones.

Another man, named Jacques Erasmus saw the action, and had split seconds to assess the situation.

Jacques then pulled off probably the best rugby tackle East Coast Drive has ever seen. 

Admittedly it might have been referred to the TMO, as it is debatable as to whether he used arms in the tackle.

Who cares? Give Jacques Erasmus a Bok jersey!
