‘I’ve never seen anything like this in my life!’… There were some extraordinary scenes during Saracens’ Champions Cup clash with Clermont Auvergne on Saturday afternoon.
Saracens took on French side Clermont Auvergne in the Champions Cup on Saturday with a late penalty from Scott Spedding eventually making it back-to-back victories for the French side over their English rivals.
It was an incredibly competitive game of rugby that finished with a narrow scoreline of 24-21 in favour of Clermont.

However, in the aftermath of the back and forth contest, one moment, in particular, is drawing huge interest online after Vincent Koch was involved in an extraordinary passage of play that saw the prop forward making a hugely impressive tackle without his shirt.
No shirt? No problem. ?

Koch gathered himself (and his belongings) once the ball went out of play and was fully clothed for the rest of the contest. However, the iconic image of the South African prop running around shirtless certainly won’t be forgotten anytime soon.
