Ayumu Goromaru made what was definitely tackle of the Rugby World Cup so far on Scotland’s Tommy Seymour yesterday. Vern Cotter’s side had what looked like a massive overlap, and when Seymour received the ball, it looked certain that he would touch down for a five pointer. But Goromaru had other ideas.
Today, Seymour took to Twitter to joke about the amazing tackle.
Finally managed to get myself to Leeds, Took a little longer than the rest of the lads after Goramaru sent me 3 counties over with that hit.

It is a great gesture, and one of countless examples of this World Cup being played in the right spirit.
