BTW excellent work digging out club info olivier. Don't see this listed elsewhere

Ditto from me. Jeez I'll have to add him to the payroll :lol:

Re the game. I should have backed the hunch I had when I said this game could be a lot closer than I thought. The factors were the inclusion of overseas-based players for Tahiti and the, mostly, exclusion of them from the Cook's side.

Just in case, you didn't know : Tahiti is about to be disqualified from RWC. It seems they fielded French players without any affiliation to Tahiti...
This is from August :
