    This is the enforcer we have been crying out for.

    Someone who opposition teams will be scared of, someone who is a bit of a loose cannon and could go off at any point.

    Most importantly though, a dam good front rower who is massive, mobile, can tackle and can offload.

    Now tell me Nathan Brown can't build a roster!

    On field, exactly what we needed

    Pack looks strong, no mistake

    He can build a roster, Newcastle showed that, but its what he can get out of the talent and the game plan.

    A significant upgrade on Jazz, then?

    Someone who will finish the fights that Jazz starts.

    And to be fair he's an upgrade on the whole side bar 2.

    You might want to slap a social media ban on him lol, he has been back into it this morning on Instagram, made some comment about Foran signing with Manly then ended up in some back and forth with some fans, funniest part was his wife intervening and telling him to delete his comments haha

    1. So, if Fonua-Blake just a dick?
    2. Is the Dessie/Foran love affair rivalling the Bennett/Boyd one?

    hes got a bit of bully/dickhead/crazy/wild man in him, but that is exactly what you want in a front row enforcer in my opinion.

    Let him go wild and reign him in when he breaks the law

    At a glance I'd just say AFB is a bit immature. That's how he comes across in social media, trying to be gangster, a bit image conscious while at the same time trying to appear like he doesn't care what people think etc

    As long as it doesn't happen with training/playing then I couldn't care less, but definitely seems a bit socially immature IMO.

    He reminds me a lot of Andrew Fifita, on and off the park. Top line player with not the full amount going on between the lugs at times, immature probably a fair description I saw above.

    Leaving the really bad stuff out, this year he has turned up to a press conference taking the piss wearing a mask, refused to get a flu jab, attacked Erin Molan on social media, called the ref a f**king genius a couple of times and carried on like a clown on Instagram while changing clubs

    Nothing criminal there, I laughed at most, but treads a fine line at times which can hopefully be smoothed off him

    Well, he's already had the criminal part covered in the past.

    Typical of the Warriors to buy a straight up loon.

    If you judge on personality and not on field impact then please uppercut yourself. We got our enforcer and one if not the best forwards in the NRL.

    Bollocks, you can get all of that in a package that isn't a loon, the Warriors go out of their way to chase the loons.

    Does seem a bit that way at present, someone there thinks they have the 'healing hands'...

    problem is our culture hasn't been a strength... bringing in questionable types (of various degrees, AFB is more a loose cannon at times) doesn't seem an obvious way to strengthen it

    Sorry but I want to win the trophy. If you want to stick with your Burrs and Paasi we will never get there. AFB adds more metres and more importantly more fear. I'll check up on you two guys later in season 2021 to see if you have a change of heart.

    To be fair he is a meat head but he hasn't exactly committed any crimes after his prison stint. I think it's easy to pick on him from a distance. Would like to see some people say it to his face lol
