Rich Morton, YouTube sensation!

Date: 24 April 2012

On Saturday evening a video of a Richard Morton (bar manager and 1st XV prop) tackle was uploaded on to YouTube by a fellow team mate (see below for the clip). The clip was from that Saturday’s game against Huddersfield and shows Rich making an enormous tackle on a Huddersfield player.

By Tuesday evening the clip has had over 27,000 views and has catapulted Rich Morton to semi-stardom! How far will this viral effect spread? Let’s see if we can keep it going by sharing the video with as many people as possible.

Richard ‘Big Tackle’ Morton was unavailable for comment.

Here is the clip.
