Sam Lousi on the other hand, we need another of his stature to replace what's going out. Ideally someone who will be around all season long. With Ball, Tex, Jac Morgan, possibly Cassiem, Kruger, leaving--some big wages there... Hopefully a lumper of a NWQ lock on way in as well as the rumoured WGJ. 




A glance at the Brive squad reveals a number of fellow Fijians out there already.

Good luck to Tex.

At the end of the day the players are humans and it’s nice to be part of a team that has your fellow countrymen in it - home is where the heart is . He is performing his contract which is fine with me.

Where is Lewis Rawlins?  Always produced a good 40 minutes and excellent lineout operator and aggressive tackler.

Tex played for Fiji in the last World Cup, so would not class him as a project. Picked up an injury in France and hardly played,that is how we probably ended up getting him. Agrew that we need a big unit to partner Louisi next season.

didn't play a single game in France. His first pro appearance was for fiji... But for a club, it was scarlets. To which he still only has what, 12 under his belt. 

We need a Kalamafoni type character hopefully to come in though.
