Holy shite this guy’s huge, can see why people are putting him on the first grade wing next year. Fijian 1.96m speedster, sign me up!

Im pretty sure he was a union lock.
I'm hoping he's the next best thing like every one else but in the extremely limited highlights of the last game I didn't think he looked like a winger. He looks less agile than Maumalo.
Happy to be proved wrong, was literally about 30 seconds of footage.

The Storm had a recruiting initiative to turn tall athletic players into props and it worked well for them.
My concern is Ratuva may not be agile enough for wing as he develops physically but, like some of those Storm recruits and other NRL players past and present could be a boon in the forwards.
Either way, I hope he cracks it with us..
 
PO’S claims Ratuva is the most talented player he’s scouted I’ve read before. Pretty impressive when you consider the talent he’s identified in his career. All the strapping on the thigh might be hindering him at the moment. Seems to pick up a lot of injuries though.

Yeah only 60m per game in his first 2 games suggests he is far from full fitness

I think he said most "athletic" from memory.

Its been unfortunate that he's been hampered by injury for two years and wasn't prepared for his couple of games last year for the Dolphins so there's not a lot to go by. But there were glimpses in that trial that he does look quick and even then was looking like he was cruising. His youtube highlights, though now getting on a bit suggest there's something there.
