A new force has emerged on the World Rugby stage.

Ataata Moeakiola, originally from Tonga, is currently playing for the Japan's U20 side at the World Rugby Under 20 Championship.

He shocked the South African team to grab a hat-trick within the first thirty minutes of the opening match in Manchester.

In the end the junior Springboks were too strong, lifting in the second half to claim a 59-19 win.
