This. To my knowledge NGBC hasn't rated one FB we've had in all the years I've been on here, going back to Blaymire.


True I haven't . Ryan Tongia who we had for 3 games looked amazing at full back.

Yep it is but magpies love things that shine even if they have no real value.

He never played first class RL again as far as I recall - ended up in second string RU and nobody good ends up there.

It was Kear who binned him and as usual was proved right whilst certain fans as ever got hoodwinked by a flashy try in a nothing game.

Your right he didn't play RL again. Couldn't get a team back in Aus and took a chance to play RU sevens in a comp called the Noosa International Sevens tournament in 2013, after that he got a gig playing for Hawke's Bay. the best he's achieved in that code is 4 games for the Highlanders in Super Rugby in 2015/16. Funnily enough, he scored a couple of tries for them on his debut but didn't play that much after that.

Also I don't know if Kear had a hand in it but they left at the same time didn' they. Bradford 2011 was both their last game at the end of that season.

Short on tactical nuance, three drop goals, just three, and Toronto would be in SL.

Very good point. Richardson has it. Though his 3 DGs ultimately didn't win the game for Sts.

I accept he may be the best you've seen....... Just not the best we've seen.

Tongia the best FB you’ve seen!, then we have to assume you’ve only seen three games of RL in your life.
