135kg Schoolboy Prop Taniela Tupou scores Hat-trick

A 135kg (at least) schoolboy prop scored a hat-trick of tries in a match between Sacred Heart College and Kelston Boys at the weekend. Known as the Tongan Thor, Taniela Tupou celebrated his 18th birthday in style by running in three great tries.

With unbelievable acceleration and balance for someone his size, the Auckland schoolboy showed that he also has a strong fend and can throw a pretty mean dummy. If he hasn't already caught the attention of Super Rugby selectors, this is sure to do it.

If anyone has any more info on the big guy, where he's at in terms of career progress etc, please drop us an email or leave a comment below. Thanks
