PLAYER OF THE MONTH

Taulupe Faletau

-

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.
