The Benetton winger was the stand out performer in an arm wrestle battle at Thomond Park in the Guinness Pro 14 Quarter-Final clash. The game was largely dominated by two very tight defences but the Fijian wing sparked some magic into the tie late in the first half to give the Italian side the half time lead. He was a ball carrying danger at all times for the Munster rearguard and regularly broke the defensive line with his deft footwork and strong fend.
The Italian back row never took a backwards step and led the defensive line for his side. He made 14 abrasive carries and combined this with 12 tackles on defence. He was a threat on attack with 40 running metres and two defenders beaten.
The all action Munster No. 8 kept his side in the contest with his long busting work rate that saw him involved in all every play throughout the match. He made 16 carries for a gain of nearly 50 metres and didn’t shirk his defensive duties with 16 tackles. He won the crucial turnover to give his side a chance to win the game.
