No NRL deal forthcoming so back to SL yeah your right wasn’t that hard

Wether or not he had an offer from an NRL club or not (GCTitans and Cronulla were interested, all that matters is he’s back with us again and is one of the best players in the league. Earning a tidy salary but everyone knows how good he is so it’s money very well spent.

Great news and I expect Fonua to play in centre with Swift outside him. Griffin to move into back row.

Connor and Sneyd in the halfs, Faraimo and Carlos on the other side. I expect Kelly to go back to Aus.

Naulago as back up.

I wonder what Swift thinks. He left Saints for first team Rugby and could end up being 4th choice here.

Makes his signing even more strange.


Swift was signed before Fonua became available.

Good to see the club making statement of intent rather than the usual, we’ll go with what we have.

I can't see that. Ratu's shown more in 10 games than Swift has in his entire career.

Swift is a very good player and very quick. I reckon his experience will get him the nod.

Fonua and his family where a few years younger previously. They'll of missed the safety net of their families and did probably feel homesick so went back home. Once home they may of suddenly found themselves strangely missing the UK too and realised they actually liked it here. I have no worries about how he and his family will settle back in

I think his pace is way over hyped. Nowhere near as quick as Ratu. I like his effort and enthusiasm but I don't see a single aspect of his game that is equal to Ratu's other than having experience.

Have we had many rounds yet where we've been able to pick our first choice three quarters? For starters Carlos has been out for months, as was Talanoa before that.

Seriously delighted about this. When i watched Ratu at Doncaster pre season i was hoping we'd sign him. We did and he's let no one down, in fact he's been a revelation. Mahe had become my favourite FC player by the time he left and earlier this season as i watched Ratu score those blistering 80 metre tries [ 100 v Cats ! ] i was as happy as anyone but inside a part of me was wishing we had the power of Mahe Fonua to go with the pace of Ratu Naulogo on either side. Then to hear this news first in rumour then confirmed, well i'm still on a high. Hope it doesn't mean someones leaving.My first choice backline Shaul,Naulogo,Connor,Griffin,Fonua but as someone said it could be Griffin [ who i think has been great this season ] to second row with Faraimo in the backs. Either way its got to be a win win. Radford out ???Yeah right.
