TAKUDZWA NGWENYA ran rings around Gloucester in the Biarritz sunshine yesterday to confirm that he is one of the games brightest young stars.

The Zimbabwean-born American wing scored a spark-ling hat-trick of tries in 15 minutes either side of the interval to put Biarritz on the way to a bonus-point victory while underlining the spectacular talent he unleashed when he waltzed around South African speedster Bryan Habana at the 2007 World Cup.

Biarritz got out their cheque book immediately to sign him and he repaid them in full here by killing off a Gloucester challenge that had rattled Biarritz in the opening half-hour of this Heineken Cup match.

With one win on the road already, against Glasgow, Biarritz and Ngwenya mean business and their sights are set on the final in Paris at the end of May. As for Gloucester, they will be reflecting that Takudzwa Ngwenya is a name and a player to conjure with and that they failed to do so.
