Queensland Reds and Wallaby front-rower Taniela Tupou, also known as the Tongan Thor might be an unlikely goalkicking option for Reds this season after slotting a banana from the sideline in practice.


With regular goalkicker Quade Cooper on the outer, Tupou will be keen to share this with new coach Brad Thorn. In the footage captured during the end of year Wallabies tour, Tupou bends one back like Beckham from well outside the left post.

Thurston who? Never heard of him ?? #RelaxImJoking?
