Netani Talei

Netani Talei (No.8)
Club: Worcester, England
1m90 (6’3”), 115kg
Born: 19 March 1983 in Suva
Test debut: 2006 v Tonga in Gosford
9 caps 1 try 5 points
Considered one of the fittest forwards in the national side, Talei also possesses a good side-step. He represented the Fiji U21s in 2004 after earlier studying for two years at Welsey College in NZ. After a good performance with the Stallions in 2006 in which they lifted the Colonial Cup, he joined provincial stalwarts Nadroga. The solid looseman has matured with each game and he got the nod for the run-on team in 2006 to help Fiji defeat Samoa 23-20 in Suva. Also played in the 2007 RWC.
