The 125kg cousin of Billy Vunipola and Faletau is absolutely massive and Welsh fans are excited
The 17-year-old cousin of rugby stars Taulupe Faletau and Billy Vunipola has just had his highlight reel released and he is quite the talent. His name is Carwyn Tuipulotu and he is a beast!
Carwyn Tuipulotu has been making serious waves in Britain over the past two years with impressive performances for his school Sedbergh and the Scarlets academy.
The son of Katilimoni Tuipulotu, a legendary player for Tonga in the 1999 Rugby World Cup. Alex Shaw of RugbyPass interviewed Tuipulotu, and he spoke about how his father has had a significant effect on how he plays rugby today.
Weighing in at 125kg and standing at 6’2, he certainly has been blessed with the physical attributes that made his family so dominant in the sport.

The youngster has been playing for Sedbergh School in England, widely regarded by many as the strongest rugby school in the country.
Luckily for Welsh fans, Tuipulotu qualifies to play for Wales, following in the footsteps of his cousin. He has currently been involved in the Scarlets academy set up in the South of Wales and he has also featured for Wales Under 16s at age-grade level.
What truly astounded us was his physical dominance in the highlight reel that was released today. At just 17 years of age, he is carrying some serious size for his age, which can only be a good thing at the schoolboy level where power is king.
As he grows older we are sure that he will look to streamline his physique whilst he holds on the muscles that have made him so dominant so far in the schoolboy scene.
Rugby fans in Wales will undoubtedly be over the moon to see the progress that this young man has been making, will he be a future star in Welsh Rugby?
Here is his destructive highlight reel, what a beast this guy is!
