Hooker should not be a problem position for the Springboks, not if this hit is anything to go by.

In the wake of Adriaan Strauss' suspension and the subsequent fall-out over Callie Visagie's call-up, we felt it worth revisiting the European Cup Final - where two high quality South African hookers faced each other.

The most talked about tackle of the weekend was by Toulon's Bok hooker Craig Burden faced Saracens' Bok No.2 Schalk Brits.

There were some questions about the legitimacy of Burden's tackle, but there is no doubt his determination to put down a marker.
