Few players have had the kind of impact that Julian Savea has since scoring a hat-trick on debut for the All Blacks two years ago against Ireland. For his size and power, the Jonah Lomu comparisons are always there, and for the try-scoring, it’s Joe Rokocoko that comes up.

With an unbelievable 26 tries in 25 Tests, and a match against the second best team in the world tomorrow, Savea talks Sky Sport NZ through what drives him, the legends and his recent tries.

    And there was me thinking that his strength was useless outside of rugby. He's found another use for it, anyway.

    Savea is one of those very few players who can play the battering ram game plan effectively. Maybe it is an entire age grade career of being the biggest and fastest on the field, if he can carry half the U20 pack on his back while going for the line, a few oversized International backs won't be too much trouble. His brother Ardie is very good too, he's not quite as big but even quicker, played U20s and for the 7s team, Hansen brought him into the touring AB squad too. It is only a matter of time before they are both on the field for the ABs, sort of like the Armitage brothers of the South!
