    :L wow, he did brilliantly off that interception, showed suprising pace and kept a cool head when he was getting closed down. That Montpellier Scrum-Half's attepmt to tackle him was a bit pitiful... the word ''merde'' might have been going through his mind, much like when Lawes flattened him...
    Been a fan of Tonga'uhia for a while, hope he continuies to rip it up for the Saints...always did prefer them to the Sarries ;)

    A question for Saints fans:

    Has Tonga'huia always been a good player or is it only this season that he's broken out as a quality prop?

    He was untapped potential when Saints first got him, sadly however he was also fat, unfit and couldn't scrum for toffee. That said, he still demolished Phil Vickery in World Cup '07.

    His scrummaging improved almost immediately once Dorian West started coaching him and since Nick Johnson signed, he's turned just about all the fat into muscle. Over he last 2 seasons he seems to get better with every match.

    Before the weight loss;

    The difference is clear.

    He was never really rated here in NZ but he looks pretty trim now. I wonder if he'll play for Tonga at the next world cup. I didn't realise this was a video dedicated just to Soane. Any other Tongans carving it up, up north there?
