    Sione Finefeuiaki played some good minutes in PL on Sunday and shaped up pretty well. Due to his size I expect that he has some problems laterally in defence but he made a big dent in the line every time he ran the ball.

    He is a definite 1st grade back up. If George Rose can get back on the paddock there is some reasonable depth at prop.

    Did anyone else see him and have an opinion? He was the unit in no. 8 - pretty hard to miss him.

    I saw him play at Central Coast stadium and he was sensational.

    I'm stumped by the pronunciation of his first name, let alone his second.

    Anyone know?

    He looked very strong on the weekend. Made good meters and needed 2 or 3 tacklers to bring hm down.

    Not sure if he up to NRL yet but a few more strong performances he will be pushing Rose and Lulu for a bench spot.

    Good news with Kite in line for an origin spot and King in line for another injury

    he is good depth and could probably grow into a fui fui type player - used for impact in short spells

    I asked him at the fan day:

    FINNY - FOOEY-ARKY.

    I think the first name is pronounced Sione (to rhyme with Leonie!)

    Was great in the trials and this is good news. Apparently there were problems with his contract and he missed a few games.
