In all honesty, until watching the San Diego Sevens two weeks ago, I had never heard of young Worcester and England Sevens star, Uche Oduoza.
But after literally the first minute of the England vs Fiji game, I sat up and took notice. Oduoza scored this incredible try direct from the kickoff, beating the hapless Fijian players who, in all honesty, didn't look like they wanted to tackle the big guy when in full flight.
Oduoza is fast, agile, and from the look of things, very strong. His profile on the Worcester Warriors website says he only weighs 100kg, despite looking a lot bigger, and after seeing this try, he looks to be a powerful runner who no doubt has a great career ahead of him for both Worcester and indeed, England.
A name to remember for the future perhaps.
