Fonua in the centres

Post by Sabre » Thu 10 May, 2018 10:01 pm

Does he retain his spot at centre, even when Naiqama is fit? Or does he go back to the wing.

I think he should be kept at centre.

He has to be in the team. You can't drop him just after getting MOTM.

Kev and MCK have to battle it out.

That's a good question , better centre or winger

Hard to tell , the Cows didn't throw much attack at that side in the red zone

Deserves another chance

Much better suited in the centres. Doesn’t have to worry about the high ball.

Much better at centre for mine - he makes too many errors at wing and MWZ is a safer winger - combined they really look the goods but Kevvie has been playing well too. Just glad I'm not in Ivan's position

Why change a winning team...?

Has to stay in the centres. We have lost 2 centres and now we have 2 who can break defences and offload.

Keep the team as is. What a difference having Packer back too made
Let's make the Tigers great again!

I love this position for him.. he does not have to catch high balls as much and he can rome around the ball in attack in our half.. He was outstanding tonight and s*** all over Kev.

I could be wrong but I thought he played the latter part of his time at the Storm in the centres.

That's another thing I should have added. He combined beautifully with Watene-Zelezniak. Every time Fonua had the ball MWZ was positioned nicely for an offload.

Been a long wait. Always thought after we got him that he would come back and play centre. Played it for Storm so Bellamy must of seen something. I think the code hoper who plays for them now and Qld may have pushed him out. We got one off the storm for a change. Hey!!!

I just wish someone bar Brooks would try and take the high kicks on the full :lol:

Definitely a weak point tonight
