Should have probably found a thread to stick this in but stuff it... Just read these 2 lads have been signed by The Tahs and Brumbies... So any good? Big potential? Overrated etc. i wouldn't mind hearing abit about them..
From what i have read they are very talented..
- Quote :
- Pakalani captained Tonga at the 2009 Under-20 World Championships and was also voted Auckland's most promising NPC player last year.
- Quote :
- Fiji-born Speight, 22, will play for Waikato alongside the Waratahs' Sosene Anesi in the ITM Cup final against Canterbury tonight and could become something special.
The 97kg, 186cm back has been signed as an international development player and will eventually be eligible to play for the Wallabies.

Haven't seen a huge amount of either but what I have heard has been very promising.
Pakalani is a very quick bugger and seems to consistently put himself in the right place at the right time.
Speight is a typical fijian winger/centre who just smashes his way over the line. Very similar to the likes of Naqalavuki (sp?) who plays for the Stormers; pretty similar to Tuqiri too I guess...

Havent seen much of Pakalani but what ive seen of Speight he looks ok he seems to have a knack of scoring tries from nothing by smashing his way over which is good.
