Rugby friends,

Seta Tuilevuka is a Fijian born player who played in the United States for the Las Vegas Blackjacks for over 4 years and now plays as a pro in France for the seasons most improved team, Montpellier. He is elligible to play for the USA and is a strong chance to do so at Rugby World Cup 2011. He is the younger brother of former USA international wing, Alipate Tuilevuka. I got in touch with Seta thanks to a former USA Sevens player, Dallen Stanford who has a site of his own - http://www.eaglesxv.com

Check out the interview on my blog - http://www.rugbyworldcup-argentina2023.blogspot.com

Seta supports Argentina hosting Rugby World Cup 2023.

He's a rotation squad player inMontpellier now, played in the challenge cup.

What do you think of him?

He is one of 10 backs named for the clash vs Bourgoin this saturday. Like you say Seta has been used in the Amlin Challenge Cup matches rather than the Top 24. But Geoffrey Doumayrou should certainly be feeling the heat. 10 Trinh-Duc, 12 Fernandez, 13 Seta looks strong to me.

Montpellier are really on an all time high right now.

Les avants : Danie Thiart, Goderdzi Shvelidze ou Sébastien Chobet, Juan Figallo, Giorgi Jgenti, Fabien Rofes, Mickaël Ladhuie, Aliki Fakate, Mickaël de Marco, Fulgence Ouedraogo, Vassili Bost, Mamuka Gorgodze, Marc Giraud, Masi Matadigo

Les arrières : Benoît Paillaugue, Julien Tomas, Santiago Fernandez, François Trinh-Duc, Grant Rees, Geoffrey Doumayrou, Seta Tuilevuka, Timoci Nagusa, Dimitri Pelo, Benjamin Thiéry

I haven't seen a lot of him but I think Doumayrou is safe. Don't forget Bourgoin are last of the table, a good occasion to build confidence for squad players...

And yes, Montpellier are on fire this season. The arrival of Galthie and Bechu has really allowed the team to exploit its full potential. It's a good thing they are, too, because it's gonna be very difficult to keep Trinh-Duc and Ouedraogo after the RWC if the team is not competing for a semi spot and playing the HCup.

looks like he needs to be in a fiji sevens team asap but i know fiji have a rule that only local players can be in the sevens team, so fiji should snap him up in some kind of fiji rep team quick before another international team do
