Watch: Dylan Hartley Gets Put On His Back By Leicester Prop Ellis Genge

Ellis Genge just reminded Dylan Hartley why he’s so highly rated…

The Northampton Saints took on the Leicester Tigers on Saturday evening with the Saints eventually winning the game by a margin of 13 points. However, it wasn’t all suns and roses for England captain Dylan Hartley.

The 31-year-old had an impressive outing for the Saints and even scored a try in the first half. However, when he came up against the highly rated Ellis Genge in the 54th minute, things didn’t go very well for the Hooker.

At 22 years of age, Genge is making a serious name for himself having already earned three caps for England and, in encountering his international captain, he let him know why.

Collecting the ball from the back of a line-out, Genge charged forward only to see Hartley coming at him like a train. Moments later, the England captain was on the floor wondering what had just happened.
