Baby Blacks hooker Asafo Aumua dives over for his hat-trick try in the U-20 World Champs final.

Baby Blacks winger Tima Faingaanuku joked last week that Asafo Aumua has been hanging out with the backs too much. If he has, he's been taking notes.

The 19-year-old hooker, whose favourite player is Dane Coles due to his ball running ability, went beast mode in New Zealand's record breaking final victory over England at the World Rugby Under-20 Championship in Georgia on Monday (NZT).

Aumua scored three of the Baby Blacks' 10 tries as they ran out 64-17 winners, the third an incredible solo effort where he shrugged off six defenders with his sheer power.
