JayJay

24 year old who also plays at full back. Interesting youngster, no doubt Jessy will keep Rob informed.

Yep he is currently uncapped so this would allow him to get a work visa here in England.

Looked class today, great step and beat defenders with pace and grunt. Looked good under the high ball and as for the offloads in contact, showed strength and awareness. Not a bad start for the guy. I would give him a contract before he gets his international bow as he will be a great prospect.

I would say we have found our next 15, reminded me of Piatou. Really exciting!

I imagine things have been in motion for a while on that front...

Most likely, But its not as if the club can pretend its a big secret like they normally do with a signing... He has already debuted..

Been keeping one eye on the Taulagi situation. As of this moment he has still yet to get onto the field for Samoa, While being selected on the Bench against Romania last week he was unused and he seemingly didn't make the starting line up for Scotland.

He is however on the bench against England this weekend. So should he make it onto the field he would should then be able to get a work visa here in the UK.

Came on unnoticed by Sky and made 1 tackle.

Could be the most important tackle of his career!
