Probably cover until Ben gets back. At the moment we realistically only have Naholo (assuming he back shortly from NZ) and Ollie. Think Fowlie looked alright on wing last time he played there but even he came off injured yesterday

Both Belgium and Stokes are listed as signed to the end of the season so that suggests we've lost at least two players for the duration.

Belgium had a good career with NZ Sevens (handpicked by Tietjens) before breaking his leg, and has since meandered through with Samoa (7s and 15s) before being made unemployed due to the World Cup (thus available at short notice).

With the caveats that he's a 30 year old who has played mainly at tier 4 and hasn't had a game since his one appearing in Japan, this could be a useful signing as he can cover 11-15 (although stated as signed as a winger) and has a similar build to Rona. I just hope he gets a few weeks to settle in the A league before being thrown in.

Naholo possibly returning January as still on maternity leave.

Leaving aside his ability as a player I'm just tickled that a player called Belgium with joint Samoan and New Zealand nationality has joined Irish!

If he's as good as his name we're in for a treat.

Now don't any of you go calling him Tintin!

He seems to have quite a good hand off.

I'm not sure the height and weight of the guy but he's got a very similar style to Naiyaravoro
