Opeti Fonua smashes through Chris Masoe in 2010

After seeing what Tongan born Agen giant Opeti Fonua did to Jonny Wilkinson at the weekend, a follower on Twitter reminded us that a few years ago he did something similar to former All Black Chris Masoe. For some reason we didn't post that on the site at the time, so here it is.

As with his recent exploits, Fonua demonstrated that - despite him looking a bit slimmer in this clip - no matter who you are, you will often be shown up if you go too high on a big man.

Masoe is a player of serious pedigree and considerable bulk, but he got this one wrong, allowing the Tongan Tank to smash him out the road.
