All Black Malakai Fekitoa has quickly climbed to great heights in his rugby career but this is taking it to a new level.

Fekitoa has posted a video on his Facebook page climbing a coconut tree following a training session during the All Blacks recent trip to South Africa.

Fekitoa, who was born in Tonga before moving to Auckland in his teens, scaled the tree with ease before pulling down four coconuts for his teammates

"Monkey up this coconut tree, after training in South Africa #RecoveryDrink #Coconut," he wrote.

His impressive efforts got a big cheer from his teammates who went onto thrash the Springboks 57-15.

Fekitoa has been named on the bench for tomorrow night's clash against the Wallabies at Eden Park as the All Blacks seek an 18th straight test win.
