    Lack of proof.

    Mods: Rather than delete my post why didn't you just ask for the links?

    FYI - I've mentioned Fonua Blake's domestic violence in this forum before without the post being deleted.

    JWH will probably be missing.

    He can piss right off. I'm glad he's nowhere near rep football these days

    He won’t be picked, for the same stupid reason he hasn’t been picked for about the last 6 years, but Benji is the best Kiwi halve playing footy at the moment, and he is a very, very long way ahead of the 2nd best

    Whenua and Fonua mean the same thing so not too bad haha.

    Besides he said he considers himself tongan not kiwi so hopefully thats put to rest now. Tongan forwards with taumalolo, fifita, taukeiaho, fonua blake and TPJ are gonna be hard to stop

    I never said otherwise in regards to his allegiance. I just said he's in crazy form. My pointing out the incorrect spelling of his name aligns with my acknowledgement of him as a Tongan because I knew 'Whenua' is maori.

    The Tongan middle third has been a powerhouse force for the last two years now since the deflection of Taumalolo and co. Murdoch - Masila is another one to add to your list above of the big names that they have. It'll be a good game.

    What’s everyone’s thoughts on this suspension ? Hit was late and he wasn’t square at marker, but it wasn’t high either. 2 weeks for the contact on the ground, I’m not so sure

    I have a feeling that if the tackle was on nick meaney or Brendan Elliott he would be ok, but he got weeks because it was on one of the new golden children of the nrl

    If it was Meaney or Elliot, the players might have not rushed in. Thats what made it a big deal is the players rushing in.

    I have been trying to work out who Nikora reminds me of and it is Beaver Menzies. Just knows where to be.

    Been one of our best every week.

    I tell you What, Mr. A, our other young kiwi, Braden Hamlin-Uele, has been going great guns as well. May be a little too early for him but he looks to be an outstanding front row prospect for us and NZ.

    His head coach is also the Kiwis head coach, so there's always a possibility...

    Gavet hit Burr in the head with his shoulder 3rd man into a tackle, Burr gone for game failed HIA, tackle goes unpunished on and off the field.

    It's the whole kickers/play makers getting protected.
    Def late and he knew where is shoulder was going into his face.
    But as someone pointed out, JWH playing long game, Ponga will know what's coming next game.

    Soooo looking at the Tonga squad that just got named hows everyone feeling? We could get murdered in the forwards. Really need SJ to be fit and firing.
