Is he Addo hyphen Carr fast?
Jimmy the jet fast?
Vunivalu fast?

He looks faster than everyone else in the videos but that should even out in man grade shouldn't it?

Or?
When I first saw him play for Raukura last year I must admit the Vunivalu comparison first sprung to mind.

His speed tho dare I say possibly more reminiscent of a Fisiahi.

He used to towel up Hayze at training who was no slouch.

Just saying the Warriors did a great job with this signing......they had a SHITLOAD of interested parties to head off.

He is in the Vunivalu mould but he is packing on a bit of size as well. He kind of reminds me of Rieko Ioane in his ability to find space and burn runners. I heard the amount of interest in signing this kid was insane. Given the Warriors managed to knock back all the other league and rugby suitors mean's they are doing something very very right. Also leads me to believe we will see him in first grade potentially a lot quicker than other juniors.

Great to hopefully get one before the Australian based clubs.

Put him on a two year development contract. That will give us a big advantage in keeping him in the future.

Looks like an absolute weapon - he most exciting part? We have a proper fitness coach to help him reach that next level now. Also sounds like he's got his head screwed on right. Will be interesting to see if he features in the trials at all.

Looks good, but I've learnt to temper my expectations. Hope he goes well though, we need another centre and winger.

We just signed Ken for 4 more years. What do you want to do with them?

Ken isn't a first grade winger and should never have been manufactured as one. So what I want to do with him has been ignored for so long there's probably not much more I can say.

Kata on the other hand is welcome to go to whoever will take him.

If Ken has been signed up as an NRL winger for 4 more years then forget us winning a grand final. Surely he will transition into a back row position? Ken aint no winger.

Nothing wrong with starting off on the wing and working your way into other positions over time.
