The Fiji ‘baby bus’ runs over two Ireland internationals for fun
Castres winger Filipo Nakosi is a problem. The brother of Joshua Tuisova – the Fijian star who plays for Lyon – is probably equally difficult to bring to the ground.
The game against Munster in the Heineken Champions Cup in France was a case in point. Nakosi ran over Conor Murray and then Andrew Conway like they were little more than plastic chairs in his way on the way to the buffet (see video below)
Nakosi began his career in his native Fiji, playing for Nadi in the Skipper Cup, before joining amateur team Awanui in the Northland Rugby Union in New Zealand. His efforts earned him a spot on the Northland Mitre 10 Cup squad, where he appeared in 11 games before signing a full-time professional deal with SU Agen in France as a medical joker for Canadian flank Taylor Paris.
Because of his outstanding performances, Agen made him a permanent signing with a two-year contract at the end of the season.
However, in November 2016, it was revealed that Nakosi had signed for Toulon to join his brother Josua before returning to Agen on loan for another season.
Nakosi only played one season for Toulon and is now doing the business for Castres.
You would hope that Vern Cotter makes room for him in the Fiji team and that he adds to his three caps. Check out the videos below:
