Yea I noticed that. I actually thought they were twins because wikipedia had their brthdays the exact same day, but someone has changed them now.

It would be even better if they both debuted against each other. Imagine that.

William/Bill Tupou from the cowboys was born in Auckland ..so the answer is yes

Just watching the game again and I must say Billy Tupou is really underrated. His work in this game has been top notch, was very good after an early mistake last week too. Obviously he's not perfect and has the odd stuff up, but he's really settling into the team nicely and deserves to keep his spot. Will only get better too imo. I'd like to see him train at centre in the offseason as I think Tupou/Inu (switching back and forth) could be a pretty darn good combo.

Fish isn't really even in my calculations until he sorts his D. It's terrible.

yeah he's improving, he suprises me how much he breaks the line or at least gets fast play the balls etc. good finish aswell to keep that ball in the in goal great athleticism

He has been very good. He is returning the football with a little bit of grunt, breaking a few tackles and making metres. He seems to be making better decisions on D and is taking all the opportunities that he should. He is a solid player and I reckon he is well worth the investment.

His step is so predictable and awkward that I am always suprised when he breaks a tackle.

Has been going good though!

Pure strength I guess? Haha. I was shocked when it actually worked last week (I reckon he would have been too tbh)

I am really please for him. He has never been blessed with superstar skills or dominating size. He has been in and out of the first grade team quite a bit and this time I sense a real determination to do what is required to measure up as a first grader.

Good on you Bill!

agree with all thats been said. I thought he had a good solid game, and that try was truly great. The athletic skills to do that would have been impossible back when I was playing.

Yeah, the only glitch was that try McQueen scored. Tupou wasn't even close to the ball. I am impressed tho. Better than Inu?

For me no.

For me no.

I think his average game is better than an average game of Inu though.

He's scored the most tries, he makes line breaks, he offloads and his leap is amazing.

He's definitely done something to offend Ivan.

He hasn't scored the most tries any more. He's now 2nd= with Maloney.

I don't buy that he's done something to offend Ivan, who must be one of the hardest people to have a personality clash with.
