Fiji and Lyon winger Josua Tuisova scored from an unconventional position during Friday night’s Top 14 game against Castres.
The 113kg bulldozing winger filled in at number eight for a scrum late on in the game in absence of back-rower Patrick Sobela, and took full advantage of the rare opportunity.
Rather than present the ball to the scrum half, Tuisova picked up the ball and used his raw pace and power to beat the Castres blindside flanker and score under the posts.
