Nicholas Mas

It's an oft-overused cliche, but rugby is a game won up front. To that end, the front row led by veteran Nicholas Mas will be one of the best on show at this year's tournament. Mas has nine years of international experience under his belt and has developed a very impressive combination with fellow exponants of the dark arts, Thomas Domingo and William Servat.

The potentcy of this team doesn't stop with the forward pack. Players like first-five Francois Trinh-Duc (interestingly a player who is of Italian-Vietnamese descent), half back Dimiti Yachvili and veteran centre Damien Traille are all proven performers on the world stage.
