Watch: Josua Tuisova gives up his hattrick try before completing it soon after

Lyon powered to an impressive 62-10 victory over Bayonne on Sunday in the Top 14. 

Fijian winger Josua Tuisova was in fine form for his side scoring three of the side's 10 tries as they claimed just their second victory of the new season. 


Tuisova also hand a hand in two other tries for the side assisting two.

Hooker Mickael Ivaldi scored the side's first of their ten tries before Tuisova got his name on the scoresheet to make it 12-0.

Tuisova crashed through three defenders to reach out and score his first try of the game.


The Fijian made a massive carry before offloading to scrumhalf Baptiste Couilloud who finished off the side's fourth try of the game.


On the half hour mark, Tuisova scored his second.

He ran an excellent inside line off of Leo Berdeu to bash his way over the line.

With a hatrrick within his grasps, Tuisova stormed through the Bayonne defence and stormed over the line.

Needing just to dot the ball down, Tuisova dummied the placement before throwing the ball out to flanker Colby Faingaa.



The try was Faingaa's second try in just five TOP14 appearances since joining the club from Connacht. 

Despite giving up his hatrrick by passing the ball on to Faingaai, Tuisova did manage to complete his hattrick in the 75th minute.

He ran a good line from the scrum off of his flyhalf but almost spilt the pass before he sped into the 22 to complete his triple.

The 26-year-old had an incredible game that saw him make over 130 running metres, beat 13 defenders and make four clean breaks. 

Having been included in Fiji's Autumn Nations Cup squad, Tuisova could well feature against France, Italy and Scotland in November.
