Wales number eight Taulupe Faletau added his name to the list of test centurions during the recently completed Autumn Nations Series.

Faletau has now represented his country 95 times while his involvement on three British and Irish Lions tours earns him his place among the 88 male and female players who have achieved the feat to date.

He is the 11th Wales player to become a test centurion and will hope to add to his tally of caps when the men’s Six Nations 2023 gets underway next year.

In recognition of Faletau’s milestone, we look at the numbers behind his stellar international career to date.
