Chiefs prop Jamie Mackintosh came in with a rather late challenge on All-Blacks captain Richie McCaw this past weekend when the Chiefs took on the Crusaders. Mackintosh led with his shoulder leaving McCaw on the floor in a heap probably wondering how Mackintosh stayed on the field.

It doesn’t look like much at first, but some excellent camera work and slow-mo replays show the shoulder making contact with first the chest, then McCaw’s somewhat distorted face. #OuchLAD
