Mahe Fonua could just be the new three-quarter threat that Castleford Tigers need following his move from Hull FC.
A breath of fresh air and new surroundings will likely be welcomed by the former Black and Whites powerhouse after a stagnant 2020 at the MKM Stadium.
Under former head coach Lee Radford, too, Fonua will feel right at home at the Jungle – even if he is dreading pre-season.
Like the majority of rugby league players, pre-season is the gruelling part of the rugby calendar, but it is imperative in helping players get into shape for the year ahead.
Whilst Fonua is quite obviously not looking forward to pre-season, he is “very grateful” for his job and “very blessed” to be a rugby league star in his own words.
In saying that, i am very grateful fr my job and very blessed to able to do what i do. Looking forward to another szn. Lesgoo @CTRLFC

Fonua will likely battle Jake Mamo and Jordan Turner for a place in the centres under Radford as Castleford’s whole backline could look increasingly exciting along with star fullback Niall Evalds and fit-again Jake Trueman in the halves.
