Niko Matawalu


Fiji celebrate winning the 2015 Pacific Nations Cup

Guinness PRO12 medal winners Leone Nakarawa (no. 5 lock) and Niko Matawalu (scrumhalf) played a big role in helping Fiji win the latest Pacific Nations Cup, beating Samoa in the final.

The Glasgow Warriors duo from the 2014/15 season crossed the line four times between them with Nakarawa dotting down twice.  Matawalu scored one try but could easily have scored another, instead he crossed the try line after a trade mark scything break and then past the ball to his captain to score.  The Warriors player of the season will be sorely missed at Scotstoun next season with the star scrumhalf having made a move to Bath.

For those who have not seen these two Fijians in action I would tip them as exciting players to watch out for during the Rugby World Cup.
