WATCH: Giant Opeti Fonua’s biggest hits

first_imgWednesday Dec 20, 2017 WATCH: Giant Opeti Fonua’s biggest hits Giant Tongan forward Opeti Fonua is moving back to former team Agen, the Newcastle Falcons confirmed. Fonua is widely regarded as one of the biggest forwards in rugby, and has claimed a number of victims over the years with his big ball carries. Fonua, as big as 150kg at one point, has reportedly slimmed down to somewhere around 130kg’s in recent times, but would still be considered one of the biggest forwards around. The Tongan powerhouse has made 13 first team appearances since joining the Newcastle Falcons from Leicester Tigers in 2016, but now moves back to France with immediate effect. “I would like to thank Opeti for all his hard work during his time with us and wish him all the best for his move to Agen,” said Newcastle Falcons director of rugby Dean Richards. Below are a number of his biggest moments, as featured on RD over the years.

Speaking in response to figures he received from a parliamentary question, Deputy Quinlivan said that the figures were absolutely shocking and showed a dramatic increase in the numbers of new applicants approved by the Mid-West HSE for packages but for whom service has not commenced due to cuts in funding from the HSE.

North Korea shot dead South Korean in its waters: Seoul

first_imgNorth Korean forces shot dead a South Korean fisheries official who disappeared off a patrol vessel and ended up in Pyongyang’s waters, Seoul’s defense ministry said Thursday, calling it an “outrageous act”.The 47-year-old man had been on board a vessel near the western border island of Yeonpyeong, the ministry said in a statement.After analyzing intelligence, the South Korean military had “confirmed that the North fired at a South Korean national found in the northern seas and cremated his body”, it said. US Forces Korea commander Robert Abrams said earlier this month North Korean authorities issued shoot-to-kill orders to prevent the coronavirus entering the country from China, creating a “buffer zone” in the border with special forces soldiers ready to kill. The isolated North — whose crumbling health system would struggle to cope with a major virus outbreak — has not confirmed a single case of the disease that has swept the world since first emerging in China, the North’s key ally. Pyongyang closed its border with China in January to try to prevent contamination, and in July state media said it had raised its state of emergency to the maximum level. “We sternly warn North Korea that all responsibilities for this incident lie with it,” it added.It was not immediately clear how the man came to be in the water. Earlier reports said that his shoes were found on board the patrol vessel, leading to speculation he may have been trying to defect.In July, a North Korean defector who had fled to the South three years ago sneaked back over the heavily fortified border into the impoverished nation.His crossing prompted North Korean officials to put the border city of Kaesong under lockdown amid fears that he may have carried the coronavirus.center_img Topics :last_img read more
