BeRugby - - Player Month -

Tan­gaki Taulupe Fale­tau was born in Tonga in 1990 but he moved to Wales in 1997 when his fa­ther Kuli went to play for Ebbw Vale. Fale­tau’s rugby ca­reer went from strength to strength af­ter he made his de­but for New­port Gwent Dragons in 2009. He was then picked for Wales U20 and soon af­ter that he was called up to the full se­nior Wales squad where he is now a reg­u­lar starter. Bri­tish and Ir­ish Lions caps soon fol­lowed and he is not even 27 years old yet. Fale­tau is re­garded as one of the best num­ber 8’s in the world and his per­for­mances for Bath so far this sea­son prove this. Keep an eye out for this great player his per­for­mances are epic.
