Watch: Former New Zealand age grade star pulls off incredible catch to score
The Blues Revs have not been able to play after Covid outbreaks postponed their first three games of the season, but were able to register a comprehensive 36-13 win over the Red Hurricanes.
The 25-year-old Kiwi winger’s second try of the game came after a low trajectory kickpass was fired out towards his flank. The winding kick went in behind the defence and Tuitama slid around the back of his opposite defender to take the kick on the full, scoring in the process.
The impressive piece of skill scored nine minutes into the second half put the Blue Revs up 21-13 and they never looked back, running away with two more tries in the final 10 minutes.
The sliding catch completed his brace after he scored off an inside pass on a scrum play from five metres out midway through the first half.
Tuitama has been a try-scoring machine in Japan, in 2020 he scored six tries in one game for the formerly named Yamaha Jubilo, who are now the Shizuoka Blue Revs. He scored 10 tries in his first three outings in that season.
