    Look at the quality that can’t make the Tongan team ?

    What club does Fanitesi Niu play for next year? He was ballsy against England last week

  2. Kiwis, yeah but the spine still looks a bit fragile. That said, I thought Lolohea played really well last week and Hoppa’s isn’t the worst FB.
    I think Niu is with the Bronco’s, but yeah, for a young guy, and I don’t think FB is (or at least wasn’t) his position, he was impressive.

  3. Listen to the moron panfers118, posts an imbecilic comment then tries to pretend it was humour. Nice try wingnut.

  4. KiwisalldayFUausie – I’d have Staggs in the Centres intead of Hurell. I love Hurrell but I think the Australian Centres might carve him up in attack. He’s a bit slow to foot it with Mitchell and Wighton. Hurrell has to be there some though.
