    Great to see Fui finally get the recognition he deserves this season. He has been one of our best for many seasons.

    Fui hates this kind of attendtion. I dont blame him, he is better when the focus is off him.

    But he is the best front rower at the moment.

    I find it hard to believe that a man who has had so many different, flamboyant hairstyles would hate attention, but I guess the Aussies are painting a pretty big target on him.

    its odd really when you consider the money he is on and what Cayless is on considering Cayless generally cant even bend, let alone break the defensive line

    fancy our club captain and world cup winning captain being well paid.

    Can't people praise others without degrading our players. :crazy:

    And yes Fui should be one of the highest paid props in the game.

    How does his salary affect anyone here?

    I'm sure a lot of people out there in the real world feel underpaid as well....

    He's come a long way from the big unfit unit that arrived from Souths. Cudos to Brian Smith and the recruitment staff who saw his potential.
