Tonderai Chavhanga scores after just 48 seconds

Tonderai Chavhanga scores after just 48 seconds

Zimbabwean born flyer Tonderai Chavhanga got his name on the score sheet after only 48 seconds against the Force in Perth on Friday. The Stormers star was on the end of a neatly directed kick ahead from fullback Conrad Jantjies, who himself is having a very good season.

The try came from the kickoff, with a great take from the bearded Ross Skeate, and a few of phases of play that led up to Hooker supremo Schalk Britz taking the ball at pace at first receiver and igniting a great attacking move.

When you have speed to burn on the wing like the Stormers and Chavanga are blessed with, you've got to use it, and with this try they signalled their intent by bringing the rapid Chavhanga into the game as early as possible. And you don't get much earlier than 48 seconds.

Chavhanga scored again shortly before half time, and the Stormers went on to record a famous away victory, against an in from Force side that were expected to win at hime.
