36/52 Tonga – Taulupe Faletau

110kg Taulupe (Toby) Faletau was born in Tonga in 1990, but as a child moved to Ebbw Vale with his rugby playing dad. Growing up with the sport it’s not hard to see how he’s become a hero of Welsh rugby.

Wales Online has two stories on the family’s move to Wales, and Toby’s subsequent career.

Taulupe talks to BBC Sport about getting the name on his jersey corrected here and it was also reported here. More on the couple who named their baby after him in this article.
