Best known for his scorching of Bryan Habana at the 2007 Rugby World Cup, Takudzwa Ngwenya has some serious pace to burn. Now the 30-year-old USA Eagles winger is scoring some beautiful tries for San Diego in the PRO Rugby competition.
Formerly of Top 14 side Biarritz since 2007, Ngwenya is spending one season in the USA’s first professional rugby tournament before heading back to France to play for another team.
In the meantime though, US rugby fans are in for a treat as this video shows:

It’s not bad, is it?
Second-placed San Diego and Ngwenya will face unbeaten league leaders Denver at home on Sunday 8th June.
With such electric footwork and astounding pace, you’d think the USA might be missing a trick by not having Ngwenya in their sevens squad for the Olympics, particularly when they have this guy in their team as well:
