This weekend the Exeter Chiefs and London Irish both headed into the game at that Madejski under a spot of pressure. Irish due to the fact that they were a few points adrift at the bottom of the table and the Chiefs because they had lost three of their last five matches in the competition. As Wasps showed against Saracens in Round 12 the start of a match is vital in order to set the platform and on Sunday Exeter’s tone, physically, was set by Moray Louw with this monstrous hit.
All season Aviva Premiership’s partner Ricoh is encouraging fans to share and discuss the game changing moments of the Aviva Premiership Rugby season using #ImagineChange. Ben Kay is their ambassador and each week he will select an Imagine Change moment of the round with Moray Low’s huge hit being this Round 13’s. In recent rounds we’ve seen match-winning tries and individual pieces of attacking brilliance but in choosing this moment Ben is highlighting that defence also has a firm place in winning matches.
