Video: Shocking tackle on Ballymena rugby player Mark Best


Ballymena are to provide the IRFU with video footage of the tackle that saw Ulster player Mark Best leave Eaton Park in an ambulance on Saturday.

The centre, who is on a development contract at Kingspan Stadium but is yet to make his debut, was turning out for his club side against Buccaneers in the All-Ireland League when he appeared to be lifted into the air and dumped to the ground after just two minutes of action.

Although the 22-year-old wanted to get to his feet, he was taken to a local hospital for scans as a precaution given that he was experiencing neck pain
