He and James Gavet provide great go forward when Woods and Galloway are off the field.

He is still young and will develop a lot the more NRL he plays
Speed? I would think Tapau is faster than Fifita Happy

Taupau needs to put a bit of muscle in his legs and will probably put another 5kgs on in my opinion

When he gets the extra leg drive he will lose speed

I'd say Fifita is probably a touch quicker over the 40 than Taupau

Just my opinion from what I've seen .

Gavet and Tapau may be just what our forward pack needs, a bit of mongrel

Completely disagree, I know it was a while ago but did you see Tapau run down Gagai in schoolboys, Tapau was still well built then.

He's the biggest man in the world. Even bigger than Dave Taylor - I don't care what those scientists with their fancy "measurements" say.
