Like the look of this guy, thought he had a great game. Excellent to have another ball carrier, especially with his pace and power.

If he can do what he did today against the likes of Leinster and Exeter And Clermont then he really will be a fantastic addition, looked good and enjoying his rugby what more can you ask for?

Now that's what I call a debut. A try inside two minutes coming on in a European Champions Cup match!

I heard him described, before the game, as the love child of Billy and Jacko, which I thought seemed apt.

Also, did anyone else notice that he wasn’t wearing a gum shield? I could be wrong, but if he wasn’t then he’s clearly as hard as nails, or just nuts.

Perhaps it has the wrong sponsor's logo on it and he didn't have a spare!

Very exciting debut. At the very least looks like an extremely useful impact player and had everyone around me buzzing. Going to be interesting to see how he does, presumably from the off, against Exeter and Newcastle

Sione will continue to surprise many people as you see more of him. He'll play for 80 minutes with the same vigour from start to finish. I've watched his games for the last 5 years and know exactly what he is capable of. All of you will now have the joy of what I have been watching for the last 5 years. Trust me, I'm Lebanese.

Best sights from the game for me, that I saw on TV, was just how excited everyone was when Sione scored and how excited the bench (especially Will Skelton) when we scored the bonus point try. Really brought home to me how much they are a group that enjoy each others company and making "memories". To see new guys absorbed so quickly is great to see.

Agree Static and we had a similar reaction when Liam scored his first try (also on debut I think)

I was sitting in front of his family. They’ve sat there for the past couple of months without really saying much. Just as Sione stepped on the pitch his mother mentioned who she was. Then was dancing in the aisle a couple of minutes later.

First time I have laughed aloud at a sequence of play for quite a while. Pity anyone who has to stop him!
