Pama thrills with rare skills

by Staff Writer

It was the piece of skill that has gone viral across the globe.

Following an arduous training session last Tuesday, Men's Sevens Head Coach Geraint John ended with a light-hearted "Show us your skills" drill.

In such a tight area with little room for manouevre, most players attempted a short chip and chase. However, Pama Fou had other ideas, unleashing what can only be described as a flawless "reverse instep grubber" on his unsuspecting opponent. Fou first picked up the skill when playing some touch footy in New Zealand in his youth.

"I've never seen anything like it," admitted Qantas Men's Sevens Head Coach Geraint John.

To date, the clip has over 80,000 views on the ARU YouTube channel, with media in the UK, Ireland, USA and Argentina all posting the clip online and on social media.

Fou's piece of magic comes just a month after Sevens winger Ellia Green scored one of the most viewed tries in the history of the Women's game - her 80-metre solo try versus Canada to decide the three-match exhibition series.
