She used to train with the boys but now she's a tank that rumbles forward in almost unstoppable fashion

Before playing women’s rugby, 17-year-old Jatavia Coleman found herself training with the guys, and proving quite a handful. Since then she’s wreaked havoc, as can be seen in this latest footage that was submitted to us.

This one was enjoyable to put together, as Jatavia, still fairly new to rugby, has a number of highlights and has come a long way with rugby. She plays for Palm Beach Phoenix during 7s season and also plays for Boynton Beach Rugby.

“Before we had a girls team I played with our boys,” she said. Now she plays 7s, believe it or not, and causes other teams all sorts of trouble with her significant size and strength, despite being just 5’4.

Some thought she was too big for 7s but it’s clear that she loves the sport and with the support of those around her, has plenty more to contribute. We look forward to seeing more of her in action in future.

And as with the case of giant bulldozer Kate Mata’u, good luck to those trying to tackle her.
