    The first hooker I saw in the Red Vee. And a proper hooker when it was an art form in the days of the contested scrum.
    RIP Tony, thank you for the memories

    He used to do a cross buttock tackle which resulted in a body slam on his opponent. I think it was eventually banned. Tough player from a great rugby family. RIP.

    I can recall him doing that one on Dave Chisnall he got up with steam coming out of his ears. R.I.P. Tony you and Chissy can go over old time.

    RIP to Tony, presume he's Vince's brother?

    What on earth is a cross buttock tackle?

    Solid as a rock, would never ever let you down. But that's what you'd expect being a Karalius. RIP Tony.

    Saddened, it's a wrestling throw which uses their momentum when you step in and throw them over your back and slam them down hard and fast. Usually winds them. He was an expert at it, that's why the banned it.

    Crazy windmill arm twirling when he ran out and outrageous offloads. What a player. Another Spartan leaves on his shield!
