The thought of a 135kg prop is scary enough. Aged 18? But that is the prospect facing opponents of Sacred Heart College in the Auckland schools competition. Taniela Tupou also has skills, boasting athleticism and fine hands to accompany his undoubted size.

Watch the latest viral rugby video at the top of the page to see why "The Tongan Thor" is surely already on the radar of Auckland, the Blues and probably every ITM Cup and Super Rugby team in New Zealand.

Only time will tell if this is Tupou's "five minutes of fame", but we should enjoy it all the same.
