He’s not in Japan with the All Blacks but Ngani Laumaupe has shown that he doesn’t need to power through players to score, as he picked up this comical try against Canterbury in the Mitre 10 Cup earlier today.
Josh McKay got back to pick up an innocuous Otere Black kick down field, but quickly learned that you can never trust a rugby ball, allowing Laumape to pounce.
Manawatu went 25-5 up but Canterbury came back to bring scores close, before Manawatu held on for the 32-29 upset win.
Full Time: The Turbos get the job done 32-29!!! How are the nerves after that one!? The Turbos go three from three after an excellent display tonight!! Perfect way to celebrate Crossy’s 100th game in green and white!!#CANvMAN #OnTheEdge pic.twitter.com/3gotuXhkqW
