In a sport dominated by big physical players, every coach the world over is looking for their next physical freak.
Billy Vunipola, Duane Vermeulen, Freddie Tuilagi are three of the most physical backrow players to ever grace the game.
Now it would appear there is a future giant set to be unleashed at the number eight position.
Richie Tupuailei who plays for St Thomas of Canterbury in Christchurch, New Zealand has gone viral recently.
A giant of a man, the young star packs down in both the front and backrows. In this video produced by Rugbypass, he can be seen tormenting Nelson College’s defence in a top of the table clash.
It is one thing being a giant amongst giants but his incredible ball handling skills and running lines make Tupuailei the complete package as a player.
