Auckland and the Blues have just signed a 17 year old lad who was spotted at the World Schools 7s Championships playing for Samoa.
This compilation of his performance underlines why he has been snapped up –
The irony of it all is that Togoiu wasn’t supposed to play in the tournament.
He and kid-brother Kakoi , the player of the tournament at the national secondary school rugby league championships, were roped into a make shift Samoa team just days before kickoff by Papatoetoe Rugby Club director of rugby Junior Poluleuligaga.
Poluleuligaga was asked to stitch a make shift team of Aucklanders together less than a week out from the tournament when Samoa couldn’t send a team.
A number of Super Rugby franchises wanted to sign him – you can see why!
