‘His creativity, speed, flair and goal kicking ability were more than enough to see him be successful in both codes.’
‘After moving to rugby union, he went on to further impress with Bath and Sale before scoring a try in England’s World Cup final victory over Australia in 2003.’
‘When it comes to being able to make an impact in both codes, there has not been many who made the transition better than Folau.’
‘During the early to mid-2000s, Hape formed one of the most fearsome partnerships in the game alongside Lesley Vainikolo at Bradford.’
