Bulls hooker Willie Wepener smashes Stormers fullback Gio Aplon

first_imgThursday Aug 23, 2012 Bulls hooker Willie Wepener smashes Stormers fullback Gio Aplon Here is a quick look back at a hit from earlier in the Super Rugby season, as Stormers flyer Gio Aplon learns that running into a front rower usually isn’t a good option.Aplon has scored some incredible tries in his time and is one of the most elusive backs in the game, but he is also one of the smallest professional players around, so seems to take a bit of a hammering from time to time.He’s tough as nails though, and bounces back each time, proving an inspiration to many smaller players out there. He’s not part of the Bok setup at the moment, but will no doubt be very close to selection should things go wrong, or injuries occur.This weekend Aplon’s Western Province (which make up the Stormers) will face the Golden Lions in the Currie Cup, a side that Wepener actually used to play for.Wepener is now at the Blue Bulls, and they face the Sharks on Saturday afternoon, before the Springboks take on Argentina in Mendoza later that evening in the Rugby Championship.Before that New Zealand will host Australia at Eden Park, and the ITM Cup has also kicked off, as has the French Top 14, so there’s plenty happening at the moment. As always, please don’t be shy to get in touch and get involved with requests, or contributions.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Big Hits & Dirty Play Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Suspensions handed down after testicle grabbing… 26 WEEKS AGO The ‘double ruffle’ splits opinion with fans… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: The nastiest and most brutal moments… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.
