The Steven Luatua Quarterback Lineout throw against Australia

The latest Barbarians have reinvigorated the brand by playing the type of rugby that fans have come to expect from the famous club. Against Australia they were inventive and fearless, as can be seen with this audacious long lineout throw by Steven Luatua.

The All Black wasn't part of the squad over in Chicago, so he brought the USA to Twickenham, showing that he has a pretty decent quarterback throwing arm, even if it was a little skew. 

"He's played a little bit of American Football at school, so he threw the ball like that at training and I said 'Ah, you better bring that out'," explained Barbarians coach John Kirwan.

It's his second outing for the BaaBaas, and after revealing that he's a big NFL fan in training, they thought they'd give this a shot. The Wallabies were quick to react and the ball was dropped, but kudos to the side for trying something new. With an accurate throw and a bit of luck, who knows.
