At 137kg and six foot four, Fijian winger Nemani Nadolo has been one of the most exciting wingers to play the game in the last decade. He’s now retired from Test rugby, but continues to hone his craft in France, as this fascinating documentary delves into.
The RugbyPass crew visited Montpellier recently to get to know the likeable giant more intimately.
What they found was a man who has had his fair share of troubles but is happiest around friends and family, and when he’s performing at his best on the field.
Much more than meets the eye, ‘Nems’ has a humble background but through rugby has turned provider and mentor to his brothers , as we get to see another side of him, a far cry from the fearsome sight that charges down the wing in the Top 14.
From his early days in Queensland to a career that has literally taken him across the globe, and which has seen him go from a potential nearly ran that considered leaving the professional game to becoming one of the sport’s most celebrated sons.
We hear from his brother Chris, his wife Kim, his teammates as well as the big man himself.
Highly recommended viewing, this is Nadolo – The Documentary.
