WATCH: 19-year-old Saracens lock has everyone talking with his Man of the Match performance

You may have not heard of Joel Kpoku before but after this assured performance at second-row for Saracens, we are sure you will know a lot more about him soon.

In the Premiership Cup this week, Saracens took on Leicester in what was a hard-fought encounter, however the real player to stand out was the former Rugby League lock for the London men.

The teenager scored a fantastic and powerful try from close range in what was admittedly a difficult angle, showcasing his strength and leg power.

This coupled with an assured performance in the lineout with some serious carrying rightfully earned him the man of the match award at the end of the match. Former South Africa flanker Schalk Burger was there to hand over the award.
