Tai Tu'ifua was fantastic just because of how he, Fitzy and the rest of the team made Conor O'Shea really angry in that very physical game v Quins in our relegation season.

Filipo Levi is another one, Loki Crichton... Suka Hufanga was a player I quite liked.

Ah yes the bruising number 8 / 6!

Didn't he always play better for Samoa though and never really replicated his best form for us.

Soa Otuvaka, who sadly died in his mid-20s.

I've got one in mind... he scored a bizarre try in our Championship season after a wayward Jimmy Gopperth penalty! Any ideas?

Wasn't it Jamie Heleur who scored the rebound off the post?

Tuifua was one of my favorites, Uili Koloʻofai for me never really got a good enough chance with us. smiling smiley

Willy Cauliflower was injured pretty much the whole time he was with us if I remember right, only played maybe 4 games and each a few months apart, though each time he looked a decent player.

Kane Thompson was with us around the same time.

Does Rokodoguni count, since I believe he once played a reserves game for us on trial?

Was Mark Mayerhofler an Islander? Know he had All Blacks cap but not sure if he was born there. Either way a great centre!

Bubs [Mayerhofler] was a Maori rather than an islander, who arrived here courtesy of his Austrian passport!
