WATCH: Filipo Daugunu's filthy dummy offload

Filipo Daugunu was in incredible form for the Reds during the Super Rugby AU season and the exciting speedster looks set to light it up for the Wallabies this year after earning his maiden call up.

The 25-year-old scored more tries (6), made more carries (117), gained more metres (771), beat more defenders (36), and made more offloads (13) than any other player in Super Rugby AU and while he wasn't able to help his side to glory on Saturday, he manage to produce a moment of magic. 


With the Reds having the feed to the scrum on the far left-hand side of the pitch, No.8 Harry Wilson picked from the base and spun the ball out to Duagunu.

The speedster sprinted down the touchline with Brumbies' scrumhalf Joe Powell attempting to take him into touch. However, Daugunu rode the tackle and looked to offload the ball to Fraser McReight. 

However, he saw Brumbies' winger Andy Muirhead speed up for the intercept and dummied the offload before eventually letting the offload go to McReight. 


 
 


 
 

McReight was unable to hang onto the offload, but it was still an unbelievable bit of skill from the winger. Luckily for the Reds, the possession was not wasted as they had won a penalty at the scrum.

The Reds did however go on to lose the final 28-23 to the Brumbies.

Daugunu could be in line for his test debut for the Wallabies later this year with the first Bledisloe Cup test taking place on 11 October. 

The Wallabies are set to be without the services of rising star Jordan Peteaia after the youngster picked an injury while setting up a try for Harry Wilson.
