People have been saying that we will miss a lot with Fonua leaving, and granted, Mahe was fantastic for us. I decided to watch the full game of PNG v USA and watch Faraimo. He lined up at Right Centre - he had been on the left wing for the other games. Simply, he was fantastic in a very poor side against PNG. His metres made was fantastic, dominated in every contact and looked very dangerous. Really looking forward to seeing him play for us

I feel for the lad because he's got a lot of pressure on him simply because of who he's replacing. We are going to miss Mahe, without a doubt, but fingers crossed we have a more than adequate replacement here

Can't say I know anything about him, but there will be reasons why Radford and Motu have been chasing his signature for a couple of years. Their hit rate has been enviable over recent seasons so if he can get up to fitness quickly he could well be another exciting signing. The critical thing that Fonua brought to the table for me was his appetite for work and yardage out the back. Hoping Bureta can do similar.

I did the same with RWC games and what I liked about him apart from the obvious yards after contact was his lack of errors + his goal kicking was half decent. Mahe was an undoubted talent and showed up big time at Wembley x 2 but did have small runs of games where he was error prone with the odd brain f*rt thrown in - Challenge Cup semi v Leeds.

Radford did want to sign him instead of Fonua, but he has too highly rated in the NRL at the time, luckily for us it didn't work out for him.

Nobody has mentioned his signing outside the club, but think we could have made a very exciting signing who will do well in SL.

Not that I hope Fonua doesn't do well for Wests, but imagine if we could sign him back to replace Talanoa in a couple of years.

I heard a whisper a few months ago that he "needed" (whatever that may mean) to go back to Australia for 2 years, but would then be returning here.

Wouldnt surprise me to see Fonua back at our club.
I cant see his style of play with the errors and poor defence will make him a regular first team starter in Australia.

Would love this to be true. Two seasons, two SL Dream Team selections, two Challenge Cups.
