Tank Top

In the past I’ve added videos of players like ‘Tongan Thor’ who can tank through the opposition like the giant who was Jonah Lomu.

However this latest clip is even scarier.

This is from an under 8’s game in Canterbury Bulldogs Juniors.

This 7 year old kid is more than twice the body weight of anyone else on the pitch – except maybe the ref! And I’m not entirely sure about that either!

The Samoan lad plays for St Johns Eagles and scores a try that the opposition, the Berala Bears have no hope of stopping – I’m not sure I could have taken him down – well not without an anti-tank gun.

It is no wonder that there is a concern that kids should play in weight groups rather than by age.

Either way, this kid could have a ‘big’ future in the game.
