Really chuffed for Tiny, quite remarkable that he’s flying half way round the world to play, I hadn’t realised it was the countries national sport either. If Tiny does retire at end of the season he will be much missed.

I see that kr are releasing Albert Vete who has all the makings of a Wakefield signing and we are one of the few clubs looking likely to have a few overseas slots could be a good fit

Yes really happy for Arona too. Bet he’s made up with that. He has been (and is) one of the good ones from our overseas contingents over the years. It’s probably the right time for trinity to look for a couple of new props but he’s been a good influence on and off the field. 150 + trinity appearances is very good going.

Hopefully we see a few good performances from him for remainder of 2022.
Top six 2005 - Trinity.

Tini would be much missed should he decide to retire. Not a "star" player in one sense of the word, but always gives 100% and gets on with the job without any fuss. Good luck this weekend!!

T played well so far, despite being the underdogs he really doesn't look out of place. Even filled in at dummy half around 15 minutes in. Nothing he can't do!

He did alright didn't he. Proud of him.

Showed up well. A lot of involvement and seemed to be enjoying it.

For me Arona is another one of those players who fit in the if only class.

Like Jonny T, if only he’d been bigger, or Nigel Bell, if only he’d been a bit quicker and so on.

Size or speed would have made Arona international class. Size if he’d have settled on prop or speed as a LF.

It’s so cruel how certain players get such natural gifts and never use them to there full potential. Yet players like Arona don’t get these god given talents but you know if they had they would use the to the max.

My thoughts also re tiny
I’d like to see him re sign
Still one of our most consistent all round performers
