ISA NACEWA tends to stand out from the crowd, on or off the pitch. But he can also do incognito. With his new home a short distance from training, he's taking to cycling, so he arrives at Wilde and Green in Milltown one afternoon, hops off his bike, and removes his helmet and balaclava. Admittedly, while the outer T-shirt isn't strictly luminous, it is a bright yellow, sleeveless Brazilian soccer shirt.
Dublin, and especially this part of Dublin, has long since become home for Isa and his wife, Simone.
The twins, Mia Rose and Ellie Milika, will be three in November and have been joined by another Irish-born girl, Lucy Annie.
This is his fourth season with Leinster. "Where did those four years go?" he wonders.
As with the twins' premature arrival, Nacewa's mum, Barbara, flew over, initially to stay for three weeks, but is still here four weeks on, and is staying until the end of the season.
Leinster's seasons tend to drag on, but the later the better of course. With three young girls, the thought of a long-haul flight home to a New Zealand winter doesn't appeal, and summer holidays will be in Portugal.
They'd always had it in their minds they'd return to NZ when the twins were ready for school, and the recent one-year contract to extend his stay until the summer of 2014 would fit in with that timeframe. But Simone and the girls are happy here.
"So when the time comes around if things work out and I can stay at Leinster longer, you know, for sure."
Still only 29, ask him if he would ideally finish his career here and he says: "Ah yeah, hands down."
He uses the words "hands down" frequently to emphasise something. He shouldn't admit it, but he has no desire to go to France or England.
He cites the way virtually the entire Leinster squad has re-signed for next season and beyond, and the culture created first by Michael Cheika and extended by Joe Schmidt ù not least those famous Monday morning reviews which ruthlessly highlight any lack of work-rate off the ball.
"It's not often you see it anymore, someone not working for each other.
"Every single one of us wants to work for one another and not be seen as being lazy."
Now you can pick out teams that are lazy when you watch them on videos and Joe has created a culture here that sort of stopped that."
