Former All Blacks loose forward Victor Vito, left, was part of an amazing try for his French club La Rochelle.

Victor Vito still knows how to wow the crowd.

The former All Blacks loose forward, now playing for French club La Rochelle, threw an offload to help set up an amazing try during La Rochelle's 36-17 win over Brive at the weekend.

Vito drew in a defender, then gave a flick pass out of back of the hand to his winger, similar to Jordie Barrett's amazing pass behind his back that helped set up a try for the Hurricanes at the weekend.

Kerr-Barlow off to France

The La Rochelle wing then gave it inside to a tackle-busting centre, who then passed it to another Kiwi expat in Jason Eaton, who charged over the tryline and went under the posts untouched to score.

La Rochelle, based in south western France, is where All Blacks halfback Tawera Kerr-Barlow is heading at the end of the year.

La Rochelle lead the French Top 14 competition.
