Kiwis in Europe - where are they now?

Casting an eye over European Rugby's Premier event the Heineken Cup reveals a few blasts from the past.
Among them Rugby World Cup reject Sitiveni Sivivatu, who continues to be solid for French heavy-weights Clermont Auvergne as they march toward European domination on the back of back-to-back wins over defending champions Leinster.
Then there's the old "best right shoulder" in the game, former Cantab Campbell Johnstone who has joined Welsh outfit Ospreys until the end of the season as injury cover.
Remember that classic line from Steve Hansen? The best right shoulder in the game. Fair enough - the Waipukurau born and raised Johnstone was a pretty good tighthead come scrum time. But he lacked mobility and finished with one All Black cap.
Another Cantab hooker Ti Paulo came off the bench for Auvergne.
Kahn Fotuali'i has been impressive for Ospreys.
Luke McAlister is out of the Toulouse side for a month with a leg injury but if Twitters any indication, his French is getting pretty good.
Chris Masoe continues to ply his trade in France. The Toulon loosie was recently voted by his fellow players as the best player in France. Not the worst accolade for one of rugby's good blokes.
