The only time I've seen a professional player run away from tackling someone in 40 years was when Jim Mills was playing for Widnes against Leigh.

The Leigh fullback was a young lad probably about 18 and not too big.

At one point he came in as second "tackler," punched Jim on the head and ran back into position before Jim could respond.

Later in the game Jim ran onto a ball at speed (he was pretty quick for a big man) about 30 yeards out and built up a head of steam with just the the little fullback between him and the try line.

The kid actually ran out of his way and Jim scored (at the clubhouse end).
