You rate Fonua higher than Kelly, Sneyd, Taylor, Carlos, Houghton and Connor in their positions? He was a brilliant player for us, up there with our best, but I'm not sure about that statement.

Definitely higher than Carlos, as good as he is.

That's about it though from that list,

How many Hull fans would lose Connor, Kelly, Sneyd, Houghton or Taylor for the chance to sign Fonua, I'd hope none.

Some people seem to believe there is the perfect player out there and when there is any flaw is a players game they focus on that rather than the 90% which the player does well. I bet you bemoan props for having no real pace.

It’s fair to say most wingers are not great defenders. That said Fonua could put in some spectacular hits at times.

He was great for us, but wing is hardly the priority. I certainly would not advocate a winger being on marquee money.

I'd probably say on par with Carlos. He's a different type of player, not a game changer like Mahe but a very good centre at that. I'd sign Carlos up for life, big fan.

Not sure if this has been posted, Alex Glen, right at the end of the show, pretty much ends another one of our possible targets.

Russell Packer is available after falling out with Madge Maguire.

Could he get a visa with his assault conviction? He is on 700k over there, could anyone afford him?

Short piece with Ratu. Says that he'd like to carry on in the army after his time in rugby by no hints towards time frames or which code!
