18-year old 135kg 'Tongan Thor' runs wild

Published Add your comment

Daniel Tupou has become an internet sensation, after the 135kg prop celebrated his 18th birthday with an incredible hat trick.

The Sacred Heart College tighthead prop - otherwise known as 'Tongan Thor' - scored three tries against Kelston Boy's High School inside the first 20 minutes, while competing in New Zealand's top school-boy competition.

Tupou shows some unbelievable pace and power, as well as some deft handling and footwork, in the process of destroying the Kelston defence.

If the incredibly gifted young man keeps up these kinds of performances then he'll become a house-hold name in no time at all.
