Great to see an awesome player back in action! Questionable interviewer though... didn't take much away from that.

Only with Caucau could 108kg be prefixed with "only"... The man is still an absolute monster

Looked like an exciting game considering it was between two average teams and ended in a draw

One hell of a game. Frantic stuff. I actually watch the game because of Rupeni's presence. one comment though on Francis Saili, he is a great player but sometimes his decision making is really poor, kicking aimlessly, passing badly. I reckon there are 3 forward passes he made during the game. He need to stop doing all those stuff and he will be great for Allblacks.

Uhh, doubt that since he's previously played for Fiji.

He may frustrate a coach sometimes, but I suppose maybe ranger would too (maybe my favorite player now).

One thing I noticed was how small looked in his hands. Like a child's toy, no wonder the game seems so easy to him

Outstanding player.
He used to play for a couple of team in europe. (agen and Toulouse.)
But he seems to be quite lost there.

It's a good thing to see him back on the field and smiling.

Call me old-fashioned but I still can't get used to the use of the word "just" in this sentence when describing a wing: "He's reportedly weighing in at just 108kg"

Absolutely delighted to see Caucau back in action. He remains the most exciting player I've ever watched. These Fijian blokes seem to age like wine, so it's quite plausible if he can keep his head straight he could get right to the very top again.

Maybe we'll see him in England for the 2015 world cup!? I certainly hope so.

I think RD use the word 'just' to justify that he is loosing some of his weight, and training harder than before, putting lots of commitment nowadays.

Yeah, I get it, I was just being ironical.

Such a wasted talent! Had he stayed off the fags and doughnuts, he could have easily been one of the all-time greats. Shame they were just too tasty.

I hope he can give us a couple of seasons to enjoy before he finishes his career.
