Arrived two years ago from the Stade Montois, which was in Pro D2, Timoci Matanavou made himself known very quickly. Real finisher, he can also make individual exploits as collective effort, due to exceptional performances: few players, indeed, have his speed.
His stats in Toulouse are exceptional, as he scored, before 2013-2014, 26 tries out of 41 matches !
He comes to immortalize the Toulouse Fidjian tradition, like Maleli Kunavore, Vilimoni Delasau and Rupeni Caucaunibuca.
In 2011-2012, Timoci played the H Cup for the first time. And he made great first steps as he managed to score 8 tries out of 6 matches ! Thanks to this incredible stat, even if the Stade was eliminated in quarter final, Timoci was the best scorer of try of the competition this season.
The May 12th 2012, for a Top 14 match at the Stadium against Montpellier, Timoci was author of a great performance. He scored three tries in the same match !
