Hill lifted the ball-carrier into the air and then slammed her onto her back, where she was briefly held on the grass.
‘Picked up and dumped,’ one of the commentators could be heard saying after the explosive tackle.
Hill was praised for her bone-crunching manoeuvre, with many fans arguing she deserving of more game time.
‘How good is this hit! Great player Courtney killed it in Super League too, would’ve loved seeing her get more field time,’ one said.
‘They didn’t give her enough game time, she’s way more creative than her teammates,’ added another.
A third viewer said: ‘Woah. I’m clutching my own ribs after that.’
