    David Nofoaluma talks about the year that was and the year to come.

    No questions are off limits in our 2017 “Unfiltered” Player Profile videos.

    Nofoaluma on… his 2016 form

    “I think it was the best year of my career, for sure. I was really happy with how I went. It was exciting to know what I can do when I get more games into me. As each game progressed, I picked up a lot of things and I kept finding things that I could do in playing to improve. I felt better and better as each game went on and I think I was playing my best footy at the end of the year, which was really pleasing.”

    Nofoaluma on… the right edge

    "It’s always good scoring tries, but it comes off the back of good players around me. I’m really lucky to have amazing players like Mitch, Teddy and Kevvy around me to set me up. I would love to be on top of the try-scorers again in 2017. I think we’re building some really special on that edge and we’re really dangerous. The more we play together, the more that combination develops and I think you could see that during the year.

    “To be honest, we could have been a lot better defensively, and we’ve got something to work on there this pre-season to stop that. We want to be the best right edge in the competition in both attack and defence and we’ll work really hard to get there.”

    Nofoaluma on… making his debut for Samoa

    “There’s a lot about family and culture in playing for Samoa. They’re a great community, and footy is cherished there, and there was no prouder moment to represent those people.”

    Nofoaluma on… his 2017 goals

    “I’ve got high expectations. I want to be one of the best wingers in the game and I’m doing my best to achieve that. If I’m working on those little things, and preparing well, hopefully it pays off in the game. We’ve got great players here and I think there’s something really exciting.”

    David…mate if you guys can turn the worst right edge defensively in the Comp to the best in a pre-season we will be Un-stoppable …

    Rebellions are built on HOPE…



  • There is no doubt that Dave and the guys can be extremely exciting in attack……hopefully JT has introduced them to a couple of new tackling bags and techniques…maybe big Jama can help stop the points leaking on that side… 😒

    I understand the need for online content, but lets not pretend this isn’t a puff piece

    You are correct but you can hardly expect him to say “the bloke alongside me has no idea in defence” even if it is obvious.

    i had a chuckle at that too. its still a basic cliche interview, but really we dont need anything more. i dont know why they tried to say it was anything different.

    onto nofo i thought he finished the season brilliantly. his work out of our end is so valuable. if he continues that form i genuinaly think he will come into rep contention in another year or two

    Until he’s asked how much does he think he’s worth on the open market.



  • Interesting fact on Noffa. His stats go through the roof when Tedesco plays as opposed to when he doesn’t. Not sure how much of a coincidence that is.



  • ‘To be honest we could have been better defensively’….understatement of the century. But I suspect it’s got a lot more to do with the guys inside him.



  • Of course Tedesco makes the players around him more dangerous.

    Yep the true culprits were the weak defensive structures of an inexperienced backrower, an ineffective 5/8th and a clueless centre. They compounded each others errors resulting in Nofo being overlapped regularly.

    Will be interesting to see if Moses is ineffective in the all stars match with some quality players around him.
