Cheeky Tongan try at the Hong Kong Sevens

Cheeky Tongan try at the Hong Kong Sevens

In a tight encounter between Tonga and Australia at this weekends Hong Kong leg of the IRB Sevens, Tongan flyer Teu Nafe showed that a bit of trickery can go a long way.

Nafe got the ball a few meters out and all he had to do was dot it down, but realising the importance of getting the kick closer to the posts, very important in Sevens as all conversions are taken as dropkicks, he pulled of his bag of tricks.

A little step, a huge dummy and he was away, leaving the hapless Aussie defender on the floor. Outrageous, possibly even unnecessary, but in a tight game, every point counts.

Whichever way you look at it, pure entertainment factor is what makes Sevens great to watch, and this was just another example of that.

Note: More highlights from the weekends events to come.

Yeah, but they'd have an even less chance of getting that conversion had he not brought the ball closer to under the posts.

I don't see how this could ever be seen as unnecessary. In fact, I wish more players would do this (in sevens and fifteens).I never understand why players settle for touching it down in the corner when they've got space to move in and make the kick easier.
