In the same game, Malakai Fekitoa scored one of the tries of the tournament so far with a 60m run that started by shrugging off two would-be tacklers before he turned on the afterburners to outpace the chasing Sharks players.
His display was impressive enough to prompt former All Black Justin Marshall, writing in the New Zealand Herald, to suggest an All Black call-up might not be too far away.
He is a real spark for the Highlanders, and it wouldn't surprise me if the All Blacks were looking at him. They need depth at centre and Ben Smith, tried there last year in the absence of Conrad Smith, is an outside back.
The only way you build depth is to give players with potential and the ability to fit your game plan a go. He could be named as an All Black as soon as this year.
