Tuisova's wrecking ball montage will make you grateful you never made it as a pro

It’s no secret to any rugby fan that Josua Tuisova is a behemoth, a wrecking ball of a player and a huge asset (in every way) to a team.

Fijians are built differently to players in the northern hemisphere, but even amongst his own national team-mates, Tuisova is something extraordinary.

The 26-year-old, 17st winger is as dominant an attacking threat as he is a defensive force and has played a massive role for Toulon and now Lyon in the French Top 14.

He has five tries already for Lyon but amassed a total of 57 for Toulon during his six-year tenure.

Such is the strength and physique of Tuisova, he has transformed how a modern day winger should be in much the same way as Jonah Lomu did in the early 1990s. An incredibly difficult player to tackle and one which, when he gets the ball, is a threat from literally anywhere on the field.

Not all wingers fit that mould, as Cheslin Kolbe has proven, but the bulky winger is now an important asset in teams and certainly for fans, always fun to watch.
