Here's why All Blacks fans are so excited by Blues youngster Hoskins Sotutu

Blues number eight Hoskins Sotutu has got New Zealand fans excited by his form since returning for the franchise in Super Rugby Aotearoa.

The 21-year-old has displayed an array of skills from pinpoint passes to tactical kicks, which combined with his powerful ball carrying technique and tireless breakdown work makes him a hot prospect for the future.

It was recently unveiled that Sotutu qualifies for Test match rugby for his birthplace New Zealand, Fiji through his father and England through his mother, although rumours are already circulating that the All Blacks are preparing to name him in their next squad.

The youngster turns 22 in July and some fans believe he has the potential to take over the reigns of legendary number eight Kieran Read, who retired from international duty after the 2019 Rugby World Cup having won 128 caps for New Zealand.

Sotutu stands at 6ft 4โ€ and his slick skills have been hard to miss with his bleach blonde hair. Here are some of his best moments in a Blues shirt so far this season.
