Scotland’s David Denton weighs just under eighteen stone and stands at 6 foot 5 inches. Ireland’s Mike Ross weighs twenty stone and stands at just over 6 foot 1 inches.
Surely the Irishman’s cubed mass would render him a relatively immovable object? Wrong.
During Ireland’s 28-22 defeat of Scotland, Denton steamrolled Ross on his way to creating a Scottish try. It was an incredible show of force from the Edinburgh back row, and left Ross lying flat on his back in the middle of the Aviva turf.

And again, ouch. That looks like it hurt him in the body and the feels…
Don’t worry, we’re sure Mike Ross will have forgotten about the hit once Ireland training resumes next week.
