Pick of the Premiership 2: Salesi Ma'afu

In the second instalment of Talking Rugby Union's 'Pick of the Premiership' series, we have two enormous hits from the last round of action to whet your mid-week appetites ahead of next weekend.

The first sees Northampton's Salesi Ma'afu line up Newcastle lock Dom Barrow, fly out of the line and send in a crunching hit. 

The tackle set the tone for the rest of the game, though, as Northampton returned to winning ways with a 35-10 victory over the north east side, away from home.

The Saints will be hoping to continue their form next week when they host high-flying Bath.
