The man of the moment… and not only that! The most used player in Pierre Mignoni’s squad, Setariki Tuicuvu, who arrived in the off-season from Brive as a World Cup joker, continues to impress. Simply believe that in fact, his room for improvement is immense. Saturday afternoon on the Charles-Mathon synthetic, “Seta” as his nickname, like his team, did not do everything well.

“He is a reflection of his season”

However, he twice saved the RCT from a lot of trouble. First at 7e minute when the Varois, not yet really awake, are surprised with a beautiful combination coming off the line. Vasil Lobzhanidze delivers a nice wrist pass to Daniel Ikpefan who tears the defensive curtain and serves Lucas Mensa. The two former Toulon players think the move is the winner but Setariki Tuicuvu, coming from nowhere, grabs onto the Argentinian.

Rebelote this time after the siren of the first period when the versatile Fijian, repositioned yesterday in the center, safes the winger Enzo Reybier at the end of the line with the help of Ben White.

DJ outside the locker room

Two great saves which allowed him to gain further credit with his coaches. Pierre Mignoni was also rave about it: ““Seta”, he is the image of his season. He is currently the best three-quarterback, so he is playing. I still see people who wonder why we are fielding him. He is playing because it is the best.” And to the director of rugby to deliver a few points where the solid Tuicuvu can still progress: Now, I want him to bring all this energy he has to transcend, in a positive way, the players around him. That’s a bit of what he’s still missing. He is someone who is rather withdrawn but when he has the ball, he is extraordinary. I expect him to bring a little more to others and for that, he must have very high objectives.”

Leaving the locker room after the meeting with his friend Jiuta Wainiqolo, the usually shy Setariki Tuicuvu turned into a DJ. No Fijian singing on the program but rather If our organizations, feria music par excellence, loud in the enclosure. With a laughing Jiuta Wainiqolo at his side. What if this was the beginning of change?
