Glad it’s finally been announced, felt like it’s dragged on abit for what ever reason. Best winger I’ve seen in my time as a Wakey fan and fortunate enough to see one of the best individual displays at Belle vue when he literally single hand-idly beat Salford for us, albeit for 40 mins.

Let’s be honest here , a fantastic world class player whilst on the pitch but has spent far too much time on the physio table and as a club we simply can’t afford that luxury . Will be interesting watching him at les cats and seeing how he goes in a top quality team . In hindsight for me we should have cashed our chips in earlier and got something for him ,but I’m more than happy with the wingers we have at present , along with Kay and kershaw who will come back on stream shortly .exciting times ahead with comings and goings and a shaking up of the club

I’m glad it’s sorted I think we all knew it was over after the Cas debacle.

Best player in relation to his position I have seen in my time watching Trinity. The only out and out WOW player we’ve had. A true entertainer.

Although I hope he goes on to win trophies I think we got the best of him. The club certainly got a return on its investment.

Thanks Tom it’s been an absolute pleasure.

This is the world's worst secret.

Been a good player for us, and on his day, a match winner.

Having said that, due to injuries, only averaging something like 16/17 games a season. Need your key players playing in more games than that.

Without sounding harsh, a bit of brass will be saved on the medical bill.

Good luck Tom

‘A good player’ !!!


Give your head a shake. An outstanding player nothing less will do.

Sorry but that’s a lousy description by any standards.

Here’s one for the ones who like their stats - since Tanginoa came (80 games ago ago , may 2019 ) )Miller , fifita , Johnstone , and Tupou have only played together on 7 occasions through various reasons , mainly injuries. However you look at it that it’s a poor return on your big investments , and obviously one reason why we are where we are

Sadly that is the story of his career at Wakey.

He leaves with a lot of what ifs due to his injury record.

He has a great carry and obviously his finishing is top class. I’m still of the opinion he has issues in defence but again due to his lack of ability to get a run of games together consistently it’s always going to be a challenge to improve weaknesses in anyones game.

I hope the warmer climate change is environment and coaching can see him on the field more consistently because that is obviously what he needs to do to reach his potential which I think he can do still.

Catalans have clearly showed their hand by retaining Yaha on a new deal as well as having Tom Davis on contract. A nice insurance policy to have in place.

They are 2 very good wingers. Tom has the potential to be the best on the 3 of them however they clearly expect him to miss a few games enduring they have quality back up when he does.
Unofficially the most boring poster on Cherry and White.

Vasty, I've given you (this time) and Snowie (Previous posts) a lot of rope on the swearing. Can't keep happening. I'll have to take more action that just editing it in future
Jools....go back to your teams board now. As a visitor you need to comment constructively rather than just troll for bites.
