A question was made by one of the readers of Fiji Rugby Post’s latest post titled “Loose forwards need to negate Pocock” on why incumbent Flying Fijian inside centre Lepani Botia should play as a loose forward.
“Botia has never played flanker for Fiji. Why would they start him there now?” questioned Isaia Lawaniyasana on the Facebook Page Green & Blue Fiji.
“(Peceli) Yato, and (Semi) Kunatani can handle Pocock.”

Grenoble 30-12 La Rochelle Stade des Alpes
Alipate Ratini continued with his scoring tries in the Top 14 league crossing the chalk in the second half to help Grenoble defeat La Rochelle at the Stade des Alpes, running out 30-12 winners.
The right winger used all his pace and power to crash over, and Jonathan Wisniewski’s conversion stretched the lead to 23-9 over a side that had two Flying Fijian backs in Albert Vulivuli at inside centre and Ratini’s counterpart at left wing Sireli Bobo.
