IF TONGA are going to make any impression at this year's World Cup they are going to need all of their top players performing at the highest level - captain Otenili Langilangi is no exception.

The Tongan Torpedo', right, as he is known, has an amazing record for his national side and has more than fulfilled the faith shown in him by boss Quddus Fielea.

Langilangi, a dynamic openside flanker, was handed his international debut against Japan just 12 months ago, but in only his third Test was made captain.

Perhaps he can be the man to take Tonga to new heights.
