    He was a centre wasn’t he?

    Either way he was one of those players that never played in super league even though he had talent to do so.

    Because of his crunching tackles I believe. “Plays all the big hits” or something to that effect the saying went.

    No worries. Maybe you were thinking of Malaki Aizue?

    Wasn’t it given to him by one of the commentators when PNG played in the 4N for the reason Walter mentioned?

    Good to learn about his residency status. He deserves it.

    Former Kumul Captain Paul Aiton gave Yere the nickname at a 4 Nations press conference because he kept 'producing the hits' including a bone rattler on Darren Lockyer.

    :D
