Whoah - There's a player called Likiliki?!

Yes there is:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Siuatonga_Likiliki

Get him signed. Off to see if he has a highlights reel.

edit: he has, it's not very impressive.

Likiliki is an absolute beast in attack, but for a guy who is built like a barrel on legs he is an terrible defender.
He plays centre in the number 23 jersey because the number 3 jersey doesn't go near fitting his massive chest and shoulders.
If he learns to defend he will be New Zealand's centre for years, and maybe the best in the world - he is a faster, stronger, more elusive version of Junior Sau - who defends even worse than Junior.
His basic problem is he is the ultimate 'impact' player. He has four or five massive runs a game where he scatters defenders like leaves in the wind, and then he hangs around too stuffed to tackle for the rest of the game.

Likiliki was nearly as impressive as Hurrell for the Warriors under 20s. He was the top try scorer for the unbeatable Warriors in 2010 and played a game of firstgrade for the Warriors as a 19 year old. He was a huge signing for the Knights, but it quickly became evident that he has a tiny motor when playing against seniors.
His try scoring is still pretty impressive. He has about 10 in his last 7 games - many of them just dummy half runs from 10 out where he just smashes his way over the line.

We don't need Likiliki either, because we now have big Willie.
