Ma'a Nonu sinks stunning drop goal to take San Diego to Major League Rugby Championship Final

Ma’a Nonu is still making headlines at age 41 as he continues to impress at the highest level of American rugby. The former All Black currently plies his trade for Major League Rugby side, San Diego Legion, where has been captivating audiences with his exceptional skills since 2020.

With over a century of All Black appearances and two World Cup trophies under his belt, there appears to be very little imaginable in the rugby world that Nonu is yet to achieve.

Known predominantly for his line-breaking ability and sublime reading of the game, the 17-stone centre has recently shown an extra deft touch to his game. With the game against the Seattle Seawolves in the MLR playoffs tied 0-0 after 11 minutes, Nonu showed the initiative to get the scoreboard ticking with a sweetly struck drop goal, bringing the crowd to their feet:

Following their 32-10 defeat of Seattle Seawolves, San Diego Legion will take their place in the Major League Rugby Championship Final against the New England Free Jacks at SeatGeek Stadium on Saturday 8th July. Neither side has won the championship in the past, so fans from both sides are full of excitement at the prospect of a first title.
