The Biggest Hits in World Rugby This Week: Tuilagi, Ferris Make Big Comebacks

Tom SunderlandFeatured Columnist IVNovember 19, 2016

The 2014 Six Nations championship came to a close this past weekend, so it's only right that the tournament rounded off with a bang or two.

After a six-month absence from the international stage, Manu Tuilagi returned to the English setup in very physical nature, while Ulster's Stephen Ferris also made sure to stamp his mark on the Scarlets after a lengthy lay-off.

Flying the Super Rugby flag this week are the likes of Nick Cummins, Frank Halai and Gio Aplon, each of whom contributed to their sides' cause with some substantial thuds over the weekend.

Rugby isn't for everyone but if there's one aspect of the trade we can all revel in, it's a big hit—and this week had plenty.
