Tatafu Polota-Nau is one of the most explosive front row forwards in the modern game. The hooker is a combative and dynamic presence, blessed with skilful hands. He made more clean breaks than any other hooker in the 2011 Super Rugby campaign. The Waratahs hooker made his debut for Australia in 2005 against England, before he had made his Super Rugby debut. He now has over 25 caps, although most of these have been earned as a replacement.
