Tonga are the latest country to be featured on Land of the Rising Scrum, as Neil Treacy speaks to Benetton number 8 Nasi Manu about his recent battle with cancer, and his hopes of making a return at the 2019 Rugby World Cup.

The Tongan international was diagnosed with testicular cancer in September 2018, with surgery and chemotherapy keeping him out of the entire 2018/19 season.

However, after being given the all-clear by doctors in June, he now has his sights set on returning to rugby with the ʻIkale Tahi, and fulfilling a lifelong dream of playing at a Rugby World Cup.
