Watch: Nemani Nadolo Defies The Laws Of Physics With Ridiculously Sublime Finish

There are few scarier sights in world rugby than Nemani Nadolo at full speed bearing down on an opponent.

The Fijian is a physical specimen and he has made a career out of utilising his incredible strength and speed to score a countless number of tries wherever he goes.

However, often the player’s skill and footwork are brushed under the carpet when his sheer size and power are so clear for everyone to see.

His underrated attributes are on show today in Montpellier’s Champions Cup fixture with Premiership champions, the Exeter Chiefs, at the Altrad Stadium. Montpellier are currently tied 24-24 and it was Nadolo’s first try of the game which caught the eye of everyone watching.

Montpellier spread the ball wide to Nadolo who despite having his whole body over the touchline, managed to touch the ball down with one hand before he was pummelled into touch.

Nadolo went on to score a second try for his side in the second half and he displayed excellent footwork to find a gap through the Exeter defence.

He also unleashed this ridiculous offload but unfortunately for Montpellier, they lost possession a few phases later.
