You’ve never seen anybody move like this.

18-year-old Taniela Tupou is a man among the children of his high school rugby team in New Zealand, which makes sense, considering he’s 300 pounds of pure, freakish athletic ability.

“The Tongan Hulk,” as he’s known by his peers, proves that you don’t have to be small and nimble to exhibit top-notch speed. He can burn anyone out on the field and will surely be playing professionally in no time.

The real question is what would happen if he put on some pads and ran a power offense out of the backfield? I’m sure NFL scouts are watching this now and plotting away. Come to America, dog!

Check out his full highlights below where Taniela runs three tries in the first 20 minutes of the game. It’s safe to say a star is born.
