Wow. How did this Crusaders star get this freakish offload away?

Ridiculous carry on.


WE’RE STILL asking ourselves how Manasa Mataele did this.

The 22-year-old Fijian produced the most sumptuous of offloads in the Crusaders’ impressive 38-22 victory over the Hurricanes earlier.

Mataela somehow flicked up this other-worldly pass to Richie Mo’unga, who darted to touch for the Crusaders’ second try with 23 minutes on the clock.

Ridiculous stuff.
