Fetu’u scored a superb try in Tonga’s 31-18 victory over Japan in Whangarei, New Zealand during last year’s World Cup and has been a star performer for Connacht all season. As well as helping Connacht overcome Harlequins in the Heineken Cup this year Fetu’u has been a regular fixture in the RaboDirect PRO12. With 11 league appearances on the wing Fetu’u scored in Connacht’s victory over Edinburgh as well as scoring a brace of tries against the Dragons in Rodney Parade last March.
