What happened to the guy who had the same first and last name? Been hearing he was the next big thing for about 4 years. Never kicked on or gone elsewhere?

Pifeleti Pifeleti? Played a few NYC games and got injured. No idea where he is now. Was always bigger than everyone else in the juniors, but once he was playing against other big men in NYC he didn't seem to stand out as much. But was still quite young at the time too. We have so much depth in the props at all grades he would have struggled to get more than a bench spot in NYC.

often see that though dont you, which is why its so refreshing to see a guy like Taniela Paeska who despite being the biggest dude in history still runs and tackles as hard as he can.

It seems Kelepi Lui has left and joined the Warriors, unless there is another Kelepi Lui.

You'd imagine Mikaele would have been in the QLD side if not injured. Posssibly pap for the blues if he was fit too, our other good ones are kiwis i think.

They certainly could have used Mikaele tonight. Lacked the size.

Wasn't Haas playing? He's got enough size to cover an entire forward pack!

— Max Burey (Balmain)
— James Tautaiolefua (Western Suburbs)

Havent seen much of either but know theres big wraps on these two guys. Tautaiolefua is considered similar to Nofoaluma at the same age. Anyone seen much of Garzaniti, seems to have gone ok so far?

Is Daniel Roberts still at the club?

I haven't seen him at all but that's a shame. Was hoping to get a chance to see more of this guy. Big, goal kicking wingers are handy to have around.
