Biography:

The imposing 189cm, 118kg prop’s acquisition last September followed the signing of his Mate Ma'a Tonga teammate Ben Murdoch-Masila from Warrington, Parramatta Eels prop Kane Evans and St George Illawarra centre Euan Aitken plus ex-Canberra back rower Jack Murchie, who was signed on an extended deal after initially joining the Vodafone Warriors only until the end of the 2020 season.

Fonua-Blake, who was granted a release from his contract with Manly after playing his 97th and last match for the club on September 11, didn’t line up for the Sea Eagles in their season-ending encounter with the Vodafone Warriors.

After being used predominantly as an interchange prop in his first two seasons he had been a first-choice starting front rower for Manly since 2018.

In 15 appearances in 2020 averaged 167 metres and 26 tackles a game while across his career he averages 125 metres and 21 tackles a match.

He made his international debut with the Kiwis in 2017 but then switched to Tonga in 2018 and has been a key contributor to the island nation's development into a world force.

Fonua-Blake had an outstanding debut for his new club as Vodafone Warrior #252 in the 19-6 season-opening win over Gold Coast on March 13, making 202 metres from 19 runs.
