Regarded as one of the leading back-rowers in the game Juan Fernández Lobbe converted his form for Toulon onto the international stage with a fine performance against South Africa in the opening round of the Rugby Championship on Saturday. The 32 year old was spoken of by numerous South African sources as being the best back-rower on the field and one of the leading players. Throughout the match Corcho demonstrated his class to frustrate the home side. Early on he won a turnover at the breakdown in a display of technique to steal the ball from the feet of scrumhalf Ruan Pienaar.
