Zimbabwean born Takudzwa Ngwenya scored this electric solo 50 meter dash out of nothing against Samoa a few days ago.
He got the ball with not a helluva lot of space but showed exactly what a bit of determination and raw speed can do for a side.
Yes, the Samoan tackles weren't great (as the commentator went out of his way to point out), but the running and fend were great.
Fantastic to see the USA score a try like this. It also lifted their side and they ended up getting within 5 points of the eventual winners Samoa, thanks to an excellent conversion from captain Mike Hercus.
Final Score: 25-21 to Samoa
UPDATE: Watch his more recent brilliant try against the Springboks here .
