Chambers is a centre. I like Fonua, he's a cult figure like Hurrell. We need more of these in SL even if they're not absolutely top notch NRL players.

All of the can tackle, I can't remember many times at all that either Faraimo or Fonua have missed a one on one tackle whilst in a Hull shirt, it's their decision making that is a problem.

Shaul is a good defender for his size, he has saved many tries this year over the line, by tackling or getting his body under the ball, he saved 3 at warrington away.

I'll take 3rd in the table over bottom with these players that can't tackle.

If three of them can’t tackle according to you, then you’ll have no worries running rings round them then will you, that’s if you end up staying up that is.
It’s not that any of them can’t tackle, it’s that we always play really compressed and often get beat down the edges. There’s no issues with any of their tackling it’s more positioning due to defensive systems.

Mahe's a centre or winger. If you compare his tackle efficiency to Daniel Tupou's who is an out and out winger - Mahe's is far superior. And yet which SL club wouldn't drool over signing Daniel Tupou. Super League won't sign "top notch" NRL players unless they can't get an NRL deal for off field issues. Fonua is however a "top notch" SL player.

You can’t go off stats as they don’t tell the whole story. Being out of position and not being able to even attempt to make a tackle is completely different to tackle success rate. I think even Fc fans highlight this as the reason for why they don’t want him playing centre. He can tackle, but that doesn’t mean he’s always there to make them.

The swap deals between Lui & Lolohea and Lunt & Parcell confirmed. The first one good enough but if that second one doesn’t result in another quota spot player coming in then yet ANOTHER bad showing by Sinfield.

Not really lol. Vaivai was there to make them but couldn’t.

Not just stats no. But being in the SL dream team twice as both a centre and a winger, and coming either 4th or 5th in the running for man of steel, starting 71 NRL games playing both centre and wing kind of suggests he can actually tackle. Rovers fans (and no-one else so far) suggesting otherwise are pretty transparent. Bitter and jealous.
