When it comes to the rugby public's perception of Fiji - cliché is not in short supply.
Talemaitoga Tuapatu is a strong hooker, whose ability at the set-piece has won him a number of plaudits. His form during 2010 won him a contract with New Zealand ITM side Southland. Tuapati made his debut for Fiji in the 2010 match against Australia and scored his first try for his country later that year against Italy.
