Never say die attitude of Sevu Reece is one of the best things we've seen this season

Never say die attitude of Sevu Reece is one of the best things we've seen this season

Crusaders winger Sevu Reece gave us one of the highlights of the Super Rugby weekend when he pulled off this stunning try saver against the Highlanders to prevent a certain try.

All Black-capped after a brilliant rookie season in 2019, Reece found that opportunities were harder to come by in 2020, so has put in a big shift in the offseason to give himself the best chance of achieving his ambitions.

“At the end of last year I had to go back into my books and put a really good plan in place of how I want this year to turn out for me and I’m pretty sure I’m clear with what I want to achieve this year,” he said.

OUCH: Sevu Reece makes brutal shot as winger steps directly into the line of fire

So far, his plan has worked as he’s put in some top-quality performances already in Super Rugby Aotearoa with the Crusaders

The 24-year-old flyer showed his commitment to the cause with this incredible piece of defence against the Hurricanes this past weekend.

Starting on the floor after a wayward teammate’s pass went into the hands of the opposition, Reece got up and chased despite Jackson Garden-Bachop having a massive head start.

A perfectly timed leap allowed him to affect the tackle, along with his other winger, and save a certain try. It’s yet another one for the highlight reel from this dynamic young player.
