Was just looking at Mini's stats and realised he is on 399 first grade games.

Internationals - 6
NSW City - 5
NRL - 263
Hull FC - 125

That's some career - He's still one of the fittest on the pitch I reckon. Really shows what can be done with the right fitness regime to prolongue a career. Some were saying he was past it when he signed for us, but he certainly showed he didn't come for a holiday.

Been a class act, I'd give him another year if he wanted it, but is looking unlikely

Correct, it’s the measure of the guy, outstanding professional, and unbelievable how fit he is, him and Sika, two fabulous outstanding overseas players, their replacements have big boots to fill.

Very disrespectful.

I imagine he'll be hanging his boots up at the end of the year. What a great servant he's been for us, one of our best ever overseas signings, certainly in the Super League era.

He'll leave as one of the 2016 heroes that created history and I hope he can leave on another high.

Fully agree on all counts, him clamping his body round the loose ball on the hooter in 2016 was an unforgettable moment. One of the Wembley Immortals, he will be much missed.

i think in years to come we will look back on 2016 to 2019 and think, yeah we had a decent clutch of overseas players there - fonua, carlos, manu and mini






The referee's indecision is final

Talanoa and Kelly.

And Michaels if we are having a party.

As Mrs B says, one of the immortals. I must have replayed him diving on the ball at the end a thousand times.

I was sceptical of his signing initially, which just proves how little I know.

Still completes every training session as well apparently. Great role model to have around the club.
