Good to see Fonua's average pg ranked 5th overall.

Don’t know why so many don’t like him. I love this guy. He has xfactor. Yes he is hot and cold but I’d rather him be in the team than not
Let's make the Tigers great again!

Never thought I’d agree with Donald Trump - but I do. When focussed Fonua is very damaging.

I reckon we should try him in the forwards where his handling would be less of an issue.

Feel free to explain why this is a crazy idea?

I Love Fonua. However I don't think he did enough last year to command a starting position. Now he has a set back with injury he ( and the coaches) should work out a position and train hard for it. Once his injury heals
in Ivan we distrust

Well...I dont think he'd get the room he needs to wind up and be as effective as he is getting our sets off to a good start if he was s in the middle

Against good opposition he is made to look average. Yes he can be a wrecking bull, but that’s once every six games. Still a good depth player, but not a week in, week out NRL outside back

Well thought out post. I’m sure our players would love reading the constructive feedback

Should try to engage your brain before pressing the post button mate.
Constructive criticism ok but this is very poor.

Agree with you SC - a few good games - does a great season make.

His metres gained were basically in a couple of games - the rest he struggled.

You’d think fitness is his weekness which hurts his consistency and impact

Fitness = The logical conclusion for every time a player struggles.
