may well be 'the one that got away' for Australia, a pity as he'd come through their school and age group squads, then off overseas at 19. Euro/UK clubs talent-spotting - as rakavi says maybe with an eye on being eligible at national level too for next RWC.
NZ's Taranaki have similarly lost a top young player, loose forward Samuela Vunisa, he was voted their most promising player' for 2011, now gone to Italy on what was said to be " an offer too good to refuse" and "financial security and benefits". Maybe one for Italy 2015..
