'Tongan Thor' Taniela Tupou sets up try after big fend in club game

You may remember that a year ago a New Zealand schoolboy prop, weighing 135kg’s, went viral after he scored a sensational hat-trick, showing off some incredible pace and power. He is now playing for Brothers Rugby Club in Australia, and set up a try with some nice play.

About 7 months back it was announced that Queensland Reds had signed him. Since then we haven’t heard too much, but this latest video shows that a year on, he still posesses the same power and natural ability, albeit at a higher level of the game.

The footage doesn’t have any other angles as it wasn’t a televised match, but from the little we can see, he is certainly one to look out for at a higher level in the not too distant future.

Note: See another angle of this try in the latest Wraparound here

    Now that is awesome! It's not a "don't-argue"; it's a DO *NOT* ARGUE!!! Three defenders beaten, including one abject humiliation and a VERY sweet try-assisting offload. By the way, I can remember a number of people including myself going nuts over a Wesley Fofana run a couple of years ago, which featured him switching the ball from one hand to the other and handing off some guy in the face all in one sleek movement. This guy did the same thing even better.
