On a hit like this, you just hope that the player is able to get up and show that he can walk it off. 

The Vodafone Warriors' John Wesley Tauti drilled the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs' Kyle Krisanski-Kennedy with a vicious hit during a Holden Cup match. The replays don't make it look any better for the ball-carrier.

It looked like Krisanski-Kennedy wasn't feeling too good for a few seconds after the hit, but he was able to get to his feet eventually.
