Hulleu came on as a replacement for Bordeux in the 53rd minute. Within less than five minutes, he did this.

The match was fierce, with only a few points separating the sides – as the game went into overtime, Bordeaux needed a converted try to snatch a one-point win over Clermont. Step up Hulleu…

That incredible try was ruled out for a previous foot in touch by a Bordeaux player but that wasn’t enough from stopping the 20-year-old from getting on the scoresheet to seal the game for his side.

Watch the game-winning try in the video below.

This was the slow-motion angle of this sensational finish that was checked by the TMO.

Fans on social media were raving about this new French star who had managed to turn the game on its head.
