Internet in meltdown as 20 year old Alfie Barbeary dismantles Montpellier with sensational Champions Cup performance

It’s not often that you see a player put in quite as dominant solo performance as we saw from Alfie Barbeary last night in the Champions Cup.

The 20-year-old hooker (by trade) put in a phenomenal display at number-eight – picking up two tries and several assists in a showing that is likely to put him right in contention for a place  with England for the upcoming Six Nations fans.

Last night’s performance really was special.

Barbeary has been something of a breakthrough star in the Premiership in recent seasons – playing a starring role in Wasps journey to the final last season.

The 20-year old has proved to be something of a utility forward after a number of impressive displays in the front and back row.

He opened the scoring at the Ricoh Arena last night after this well-taken effort from close range.

Just minutes later, Barbeary put in this astonishing kick to set up Wasps second try of the game. We watch as he scoops up some loose ball in his own 22 before unleashing a kick upfield for his winger to chase. Intentional or not – this was incredible!

Yet again, Barbeary had a part to play in his side’s third try of the match after blasting a hole through the middle of the Montpellier defence before freeing his hands to get the offload away to Odogwu who was able to race away to score under the sticks.

Watch Barbeary’s second assist of the game in the video below.

As the second half wore on Barbeary claimed a second try after barreling over yet again from close range to secure his Man of the Match award.

The 20-year-old gave this brilliant interview after the match with BT Sport.

Fans took to social media to laud the incredible display from the England star after his MOTM performance at the Ricoh Areana.
