Ben Lam terrifyingly reminds the All Blacks why he should be selected with devastating solo run
New Zealander Ben Lam terrifyingly reminded the All Black coaching staff why he should be included in the All Blacks set up this weekend after a devastating solo run against Montpellier.
The 29-year-old joined Bordeaux Begles at the end of the 2019-2020 season after spending many years playing for the Hurricanes in Super Rugby.
This performance at the weekend against Montpellier proved to the rugby world that he still has what is needed to dominate at the highest level for the All Blacks.

In the second half, Lam made a run that left 4 Montepellier defences perilous to stop him as he used his power and pace to glide past their defence.
The Top 14 is known as one of the best club leagues in the world with players featuring in the tournament with some of the biggest play.
His stats alone for the game are pretty incredible to witness.

Lam is 29 now, so he may not be as young as some of his counterparts in other positions on the pitch. However, it is still very clear to see that he will have a massive impact on the game if he was to be reselected for the men in black.
If New Zealand do not pick him, then it is certainly France’s gain, as they will keep hold of one of the most exciting players to have entered the league in a decade!
Here is the moment he made that incredible run against Montpellier!
