    I think Tonga in our back-line is a huge boost, him paired up with Burt, Reddy or Grothe would be devastating either way.

    we had an extra back last year (Inu) yet he still got to play in plenty of games .... so i'm sure there'd be room

    Tonga statistically is the best centre in the NRL.

    Another thing is that Tonga was by far the best centre in the NRL in the first half of the season.

    Absolutely no reason why we wouldn't want Tonga, class player who at 27 has his best years ahead of him.

    The strong competition for backline spots next year will hopefully bring out the best in everyone involved, something that we desperately needed with Inu this year...

    We have if rumours are correct around $700k to spend. Gee we get a world class centre for around $300k and we still have $400k left over. While reddy is a great player, Tonga is 20 times a better player. Gee the guy is a current Aust rep. Can't wait if the rumours are true!!!

    from what i have heard from a source in the tonga family is he is almost certain to sign with the broncos if he gets a release. he wants to stay in qld but he still has a soft spot for the eels.
