Uche Oduoza scores an incredible 98m try vs Fiji

Uche Oduoza scores an incredible 98m try vs Fiji



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.

This man is massive! Great pace for a big guy.Fijians missed a bunch of tackels but still brilliant.Also as an American I have to say its a bit weird to hear anouncers with no accent lol.

100 kg....BALONEY!!! There's no way he's just 100 kilos. And I agree, no accents threw me off too. He'll definitely have a shot at playing for England.

he does have an accent, an american one. the only people who deserve to say they dont have an accent are the english as they invented the language. NOT AMERICA.

Damn straight! the guy looks monstrous! and some nice stepping to fool the defence! I agree with the right up, no one wanted to tackle the big fulla...

That's an unbelievable specimen. He is as muscular and athletic as any rugby player i've ever seen. If he's signed for a ND1 club i'm hoping it's for my club! live rugby

i work up at worcester rugby club, and this guys name has been going round for a couple of years. he never really got a shot under john brain.spoke to him before he left worcester, hes signed for a club in japan to play part-time so he can focus on finishing his doctorate i think!!!hopefully see him back at worcester over the next couple of years though :]

Usually white guys are stocky built instead which makes them heavier and have higher levels of body fat, an adaptation to cold climate.
Black(african)guys have better muscle definition and low body fat with longer limbs so they look bigger but arent as heavy.
Thats why he looks bigger than he is...and since when is 100kg not big?
