Based on his last 2 years with us, it wouldn't surprise me.

Shame really. When he played he showed his class

Me being an eternal cynic, I fully expect Tonga to do a 'Dane Neilson' at the end of this RFL led shambolic season

TBF if it's like Neilson with an option for yr 2 then you wouldn't blame either side if it wasn't taken up given likely cost from our side and his potential lack of appetite to be playing Hemel stags et al

Apparently pulled up with a calf strain on the captains run last week

But is anyone surprised by this?

a) we get horrendous luck with new players getting injured
AND
b) Tonga is a notorious sick note :FEVER:

Put those two factors together and it would be astonishing if he wasn't injured

Not surprised in the slightest.

Willie Tonga is still the most bizarre signing I think I've seen in a while.

We were effectively already relegated when he signed. So what was the point of paying someone who I highly doubt comes cheap (former Aussie International) and who has been recently injury prone, to play in some games that don't really matter? On the face of it, it makes no sense whatsoever.

Did he just sign until the end of this season?

for next year the guys we do have signed on are better than we have had this year mainly,
especially if we manage to tie Chistholm down..

Tonga
Lee Smith
Ashley Gibson
Sam Hallas

all signed when it was pretty sure we were going down..
Its either a very exciting statement of intent or just blind clutching at straws probably the latter.
