Etene Nanai-Seturo showed why he is currently the talk of New Zealand with a monstrous fend at the inaugural Hamilton Sevens. The 18-year-old nearly made a meal of the opportunity though.
During New Zealand’s big 52-7 pool win over France Nanai-Seturo, cousin of Tim Nanai-Williams, broke away and produced this big handoff on would-be covering tackler Paulin Riva.
Nanai-Seturo is currently at the centre of a dispute between the New Zealand Warriors rugby league team and New Zealand Rugby.
The teen sensation sauntered clear but looked like he butchered a clear two-on-one, before shrugging off the would-be French defence.
New Zealand ended up finishing fourth after a 14-12 semi final loss to eventual winners Fiji.
Was Nanai-Seturo not passing a display of arrogance and inexperience, or supreme confidence?
