I hope we will be calling Mahe "Mayhem" after a few rounds
He may have a point to prove that he is still good enough for the Nrl and certainly looks to have the body shape and build to cause a few bumps and bruises
Would hate to try and stop him 10 meters out
I would like to see him in our starting side
He may surprise our opposition with his strength and power
He should use his height or lack of it to his advantage
When close to the line "Get down low and Go Go Go"
I would also like to see a tall player in our backs to help diffuse kicks
RTS would be great for that roll and could bring speed and attack with him

Let's hope he is causing some and welcome to the forum.

With him and Kev, a couple more haircuts could see our backs dubbed the hair bear bunch

Thing about Fonua is he is as wide as he is tall, and because people aren't normally that wide, your brain tells you he can't possibly be that tall.

Man he is in the wrong sport, could be a very effective Hockey goalkeeper! Maybe a soccer Goalie if he moves fast enough.

Either way, that elevator is HIS!

Well, the player profiles do exaggerate a tad. More like 176 cm by my reckoning, if measured across the biceps.

Michael Phelps is a wide human.

body proportions are given below:

Height: 1.93 meters (6.4 ft)
Weight: 88 kilograms (194 lbs)
Wingspan: 2.03 meters (6.66 ft)
Feet: Size 14


His arm span is 6’7″, 3 inches more than his height. Generally a person’s arm span is equal to his/her height, but Phelps is not an ordinary person

Dunno. He's got good lung capacity though.
