Following Round 6 of the campaign, Super Rugby no longer has any unbeaten teams, with the Sharks and the Chiefs each losing in their most recent outings to spice things up at the top of the table.
With those underdog victories came the appropriate amount of heavy hits, but it was the Highlanders' meeting with the Hurricanes that produces the biggest collision of all this time around.
In the Northern Hemisphere, Leicester Tigers ran in no less than six tries against Exeter Chiefs, with Logovi'i Mulipola one of those on the scoresheet thanks to a dumpster truck-like run coming complete with a face-to-face smash on one poor defender.
There's also a contentious dive from Castres' meeting against Brive, a swinging arm red card from the same game that just doesn't look pretty from any angle and who doesn't love it when the referee decides to get in on the action?
All that and more in this edition of the biggest hits of the week.
