Waqa is a friend of mine. I played with him at gordon.All the PNG players seem fit, fearless, and highly motivated. Hard to see how you could go wrong, really - provided he can live OK in the area. I recall a story years ago about a young super fit athlete from Fiji trying to make it in NRL, ended up winning a comp (I think, maybe?) with Storm but meanwhile developed a massive gambling problem, quite sad.

Be very signed if it’s any more than train / trial at this stage.
Culture shock - from Lae to Narrabeen
He still managed to have insight and run that line mate , like a fox .I hope like heck this young bloke explodes onto the NRL in Manly colours, but the rerun of his try against England is starting to become outrageous....yes great try...freakish even, but its hard to base an opinion on replaying the same highlight reel 1000 plus times, besides the fact he is extremely fast and tge English ruck defence was pathetic, in fact I think England lost the game after going in hot favourites and played horrible
I recall many youtube highlight hero’s with Luke Page just 1 example after replaying him running over a Manly reserve grade player over and over and based on that reel was to become the next immortal....and we know how that turned out.
I will add that Ipape can tackle and is tough and could well suit the go forward of the Manly middle....but I hope he can add to the highlight reel at NRL level, these youtube wonder reels do not always pan out, but still hopeful this bloke has the talent and hunger to make an imoact.
Listen mate .....No doubt he shows super wheels and the potential is there...check out the bloke Souths got from PNG, there's about 30 highlights similar - Edene Gabbie
