Bordeux winger Ben Lam terrorises Edinburgh defence with Lomu’esque 80m rampage
We’ve reached the quarter final stages of this year’s European Challenge Cup and today it was Bordeux’s Ben Lam who was wowing the crowd.
The New Zealander showed shades of the great Jonah Lomu as he audaciously looked to run the ball out from his own 22m line.
The former Hurricanes flier was being lauded on social media for his first half performance which was epitomised by this ramopaging run.

Ben Lam joined the Top 14 side earlier this year after a successful time at Super Rugby side the Hurricanes. He’s also featured for the New Zealand 7’s side. With pace and power like this – you can see why he’s so highly rated.
