Very similar; he's never out of McDonalds after a few beers.

Great signing. Should suit the game over here very well. Goal kicker, fast, powerful runner. Very very good signing. Now as others have said, time to move onto the pack for 2 to 3 signings - I'd like to see left centre sorted also, Sutcliffe nor Handley are the answer but I suspect both will be in vying for that position next year.

We should have plenty of cap space.. Moon should be going (though I'd love him to stay and play left centre). Ablett, Delaney, JJB all will go. Cam Smith and Oledski should get improved deals, Galloway yet to be replaced so we should have room for at least 2 forwards to be brought in, I'd like 3 - 2 powerful back rowers and an impact prop.

Played more at full back than half back. Can be very good but tends to disappear at times in a game.

Lethal with a broken defensive line in front of him.


Providing we acquire players who can break defensive lines he should go ok then.

Very excited by the news of us signing Lolohea,he's a dynamic player and loves to run at broken field.
If Garbutt,Cuthbo,Singleton,Peteru,Mullally,Oledzki and Holroyd stay injury free and we sign a couple of line breakers in the back row then hopefully he will have plenty of open spaces to run at.

If he comes with the right attitude then we have got a very exciting prospect.

I love it when Tigers fans have a dig when things aren't going well at the Rhinos,Bless em

So as an incentive I've promised Lolohea an all you can eat McDonalds buffet as soon as he surpasses "Sick note" Benny Roberts' appearance record at the Tigers.......Shouldn't take long :wink:

Now if we want to go down the road of ridiculing overseas players that are here taking the P155 then Benny certainly takes the biscuit IMO as he is a total waste of salary cap space...."ooh i'm not fit boss :lol:

One other positive for Lolohea is that he also starts on 0 GF winners rings just like the rest of the Tigers squad :lol: :lol: :lol:

Very happy with this signing, at only 23 he should have his best rugby in front of him.

Think Warrington have got the better half on the face of it in Austin but hopefully this guy will turn out to be a good one.
What you looking at?....Butt Head!!

At his best Austin's by far the better stand off. I think he'll be a real star in SL, and hats off to Wire for signing him. He has some real defensive issues, but they aren't going to be as obvious in SL. Whilst I would have liked Leeds to sign him, assuming he's on mega bucks I'm just glad he's in SL. He's also eligible for England, although hasn't put his hand up yet - but who knows by the next World Cup he might be a great foil for Widdopp.

Lolohea looks Ok from what I've seen, and has played pretty well for Tonga at 6, including being a reasonable goalkicker. He's had problems with fitness, and hasn't set the NRL on fire at 6, probably more suited to full back in the NRL. Its a start to rebuilding at least.
