Last Tongan in Powys

Exhibit A
As the Six Nations tournament increasingly seem to turn on who has the best players of Polynesian descent, we need to remember - point of order, mister chairman - that Mako and Billy Vunipola arrived in the UK a decade or so ago when when their father Fe’ao, brought his family over from Tonga while he pursued a rugby career at Pontypool and Pontypridd. Surely it stands to reason that his makes them Welsh-Tongans like Toby Faletau, as opposed to (the entirely distinct) English-Tongans.

You have to ask yourself if Billy in particular been rash by throwing his lot in with England? He's not even on Stuart Lancaster's bench this weekend.
