Watch: All 34 of van der Flier's record breaking tackles

Thu, 04 Jan 2018 08:29

Leinster flank Josh van der Flier made an incredible 34 tackles against Connacht and in doing so broke the Pro14 record for tackles made in a single game.

Although the 24-year-old made a colossal 34 tackles, perhaps even more impressive is how he managed to not miss a single one.

Leinster scrum coach John Fogarty spoke highly of van der Flier, saying “he’s got an incredible appetite for work.”

“He has become very, very accurate over the last few seasons so his entries into contact have improved hugely.”

“That has led to good outcomes and he doesn’t get himself injured too much because of his good work on his entry into contact.”

“He is a really good example to a young player as to how they should apply themselves and he’s a great example for our guys, young and old.”

“To throw out numbers like that is pretty impressive and it’s due to his appetite for work.”
