Tonga is a rock-solid, tight-head prop from Sydney, Australia. At 6ft and 125kg, his scrumage work is exceptional, defence brutal and not only is he a menace at the breakdown, he knows how to find the tryline.

Playing for West Harbour in Sydney’s Shute Shield, the most elite club rugby competition in Australia, Tonga has been a permanent starter in the 2nd XV and a regular on the 1st XV reserves bench. His cannon-ball style of one-out running sees him able to make valuable metres over the advantage line with quick ball-recycling, giving his halves more room to move.

Seeking his first trip season overseas, Tonga will be a good pick up for a club seeking a monster of a tight-head that is able to make an impact with and without the ball.
