You may remember that just under a year ago we shared a video of sidestep wizard Billy Ngawini making an outrageous step that resulted in two oponents crashing into each other. Well he’s done it again, this time against Stade Francais.
Playing for Cavalieri Prato in the Amlin Challenge Cup a few weeks back, the New Zealand born flyer went on a sensational solo run that included some trademark stepping and a cooly done flick pass for fullback Michele Sepe.
Stade Francais won the Round 3 Challenge Cup game 37-23, but Ngawini’s run that set up the try was all the locals were talking about.
Ngawini used to play in the NRL but also spent a season at Leinster in Ireland. He was tipped for big things at one stage but his size, and perhaps a few other factors, worked against him.
If you can, it’s well worth spending some time browsing through his other highlights on youtube.
We’ve also posted a nice sequence of close up photos from the try here.
Excuse the quality of this one, but the game wasn’t widely televised so this is the best we could do. Credit and thanks to those that helped with the original footage.
