The classy winger pounced on a loose ball and crashed over to seal a
last-gasp victory against Italian side GR.A.N Parma.

Early signs pointed to another Cearphilly loss as they trialed 15-0 on the half-hour mark.

The Italians put themselves firmly in the driving seat with tries by Matthew Dowling and Gonzalo Rodriguez.

Caerphilly hit back with 5 pointers from Sione Tuipulotu and Luke Richards.

The battle was on, and it was the Italians who puilled away with scores from Nicola Aldrovandi and Lorenzo Beduschi.

It looked as if the visitors victory was assured, but Welsh hearts were warmed when Taufahema showed a clean pair of heals to rob Parma of their first European victory with a sizzling try.
