Taumalolo puts up monster numbers; makes young fan's night

North Queensland Toyota Cowboys lock Jason Taumalolo showed once again why he is considered one of the best forwards in the game with a monster performance in the Tongan Invitational's historic win over Australia on Saturday night. 

The Tongan captain put up a team-high 188 running metres to go along with 62 post-contact metres, four tackles breaks and 21 tackles at Eden Park. 

Tonga became the first tier-two team to ever beat Australia, and the first team outside of New Zealand, Great Britain and England to get a win over the Kangaroos since 1978. 

After full-time, Taumalolo saw this young fan cleaning the Tongan sheds and gave him his jacket.
