Incredible footage of Bundee Aki losing it at his own team tells you about why he is rated so highly
Footage of Ireland centre Bundee Aki screaming instruction at his teammates has gone viral online, and it tells us a lot about why Ireland rates him so highly.
Connacht opened their 2020-2021 Pro14 campaign yesterday with a nailbiting victory over Glasgow in Galway and they owe a lot of that victory to Bundee Aki.
The Ireland centre scored two tries in a sensational solo performance that further highlights his importance to the national team.
The first half was a tight affair with the visitors narrowly leading at the break with the score at 3-7. In the second half, however, Bundee ramped things up a gear.
