Asafo Aumua took just 16 seconds to make an impact in Super Rugby Aotearoa

first_imgThursday Jul 2, 2020 Asafo Aumua took just 16 seconds to make an impact in Super Rugby Aotearoa Super Rugby Aotearoa kicked off with two thrilling games in week one, including a sold-out clash between the Blues and Hurricanes at Eden Park in Auckland. In the second half of the game, Asafo Aumua entered the fray in typical fashion.ADVERTISEMENTWe’ve seen Aumua, now 23-years-old, pull off multiple feats of athleticism and brute force power in recent years. When playing for New Zealand’s Under 20s, he scored some stunning tries to put himself on the map.That followed with Wellington in the Mitre 10 Cup.He made his All Blacks debut at the age of just 20, and is now a regular player to watch out for when the Hurricanes play, and someone who is always likely to make an impact, especially if from the bench.That’s exactly what happened in round 1 of Super Rugby Aotearoa, when Aumua came on and within seconds, put in an almighty shot on a far larger player. He followed that up a few minutes later with a powerful charge down the left wing, bowling over Otere Black in the process.While each of those moments were not perfect and included some loose play, there’s little doubt as to how exciting he can be to watch.The Hurricanes next play the Chiefs away on Sunday.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Big Hits & Dirty Play Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Suspensions handed down after testicle grabbing… 26 WEEKS AGO The ‘double ruffle’ splits opinion with fans… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: The nastiest and most brutal moments… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

His time is today.”On Sunday, Jan. 11, 2009, Whitman handed over the key to the owner of Pike County Habitat for Humanity house. Habitat volunteers built the house, the family will make the house a home, Whitman said. Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Book Nook to reopen Published 8:34 pm Monday, January 12, 2009 A large gathering of family, friends and Habitat board members and volunteers attended the dedication ceremony for the 10th Pike County Habitat for Humanity house and the third built in Brundidge on property donated by the Earl Helms estate.“The city of Brundidge has been very helpful in building this house and we appreciate their support,” said Christi Magath, president of the local Habitat organization. “So many people helped make this dream a reality and I won’t try to name them all but I do want to mention Lockheed Martin, the Wesley Foundation at Troy University and the Wal-Mart DC in Brundidge. This is definitely a house that the community built.”Dana Goodwin, Wal-Mart DC human resources manager, said this was the first Habitat project involving the DC employees. “At our general meetings we talk about opportunities for community service and we had a lot of employees to volunteer to donate time and skills to the Habitat project,” Goodwin said. “Sixty employees and managers donated 263 hours to this build. At Wal-Mart, we are dedicated to helping those less fortunate and the Habitat for Humanity house was an opportunity for us to give something back to the community.”Melissa Mikul, Habitat board member and Troy University student, expressed appreciation to all of those who had the mind and heart for the project.“We had a lot of university students who worked on the project, especially at the beginning and we want to take everyone for making a dream reality for a very deserving family,” she said.Fred Johnson, Americorps VISTA with Habitat, cited a 1990 hurricane on the Gulf Coast where all except five homes in one section were destroyed. By The Penny Hoarder By Jaine Treadwell “The only thing that those houses had in common was that they were Habitat for Humanity homes,” he said. “It was said that they survived because they were built with love. This house today was built with love and kindness. God and human labor made the dream of this family a reality.”The homeowner expressed deep appreciation and love for those who had given so generously of their time and talents to make a home for her and her children.
