NZ Sevens: NZ win and... Yet another 7s star?

Impressive is not a word to describe Victor Vito's play this weekend in Wellington. It falls short. Do you remember Jonah Lomu's last-minute try in 2000 against Australia? Well, Victor Vito scored the winning try against Samoa in last minute of the final. Like the giant winger, Victor Vito has been moved from loose forward to wing to for the Sevens and now he seems to be the diamond Gordon Tietjens was speaking of.

New Zealand extends thus the current streak to 30 games without a loss and after the third weekend has scored maximum points and seems virtually unstoppable.

Are we witnessing the birth of a new star?

Yes, in union not sevens. I believe he was the captain of the u19 team in the world champiuonship in Belfast which won or lost(?) to Oz in the final.
