What do we think?

I think the guy has size and talent but has not performed consistently at London. Was that down to AK or the London Broncos environment. I hope and suspect the later as there are many players that have struggled to perform consistently weel down there. I recall that I and others were sceptical when Baloo signed Brett Ferres and that one has gone ok.

We have as good a coach as anyone in Super League, AK has ability, Baloo can help him rediscover that. Every signing carries some risk, but I think this one has loads of upside, against Wire, with Eorl & Koppy on the park we won the try count 4-2, when they were off we lost 3-0. We were an injury to Stuart Fielden away from the Grand Final, one more front line prop, this signing addresses that.

I am very excited for next year and believe Ken Davy was right, the LLS is just the begining.

Top signing,came with a great pedigree from the NRL,the rapid demise of the Broncos has almost bound to have affected him.Not seen a lot of him in last couple of years due to the fact the struggling Broncs have hardly been on TV.Didn't do much to catch the eye on his visits to ours.Same goes for Chris Bailey for that matter.Difficult to shine in a struggling outfit.

Agree Dee,he comes with size,which let's face it,if we are to ever beat Warrington we are going to need.

Sir Ken certainly is relentless in his desire to bring home the major trophies,how fortunate we are to have him.Though saying all that the LLS should never be undervalued imo.

He's got the ability, hopefully the club can relight his passion, as he was a great player in the NRL, but was very hit and miss for London. Alongside other big forwards in a top side he should be able to add even more strength. We need a prop or two so he fits the bill in that respect.

I think he will thrive up here,a new start,plus have a feeling he will bring some much needed aggression,these south sea islanders are the toughest of the lot,it was noticeable at Warrington that Ukuma was the only one who wanted to show he would not be intimidated on the ruck clearance,that is not to say that Eorl or Kopz are in any way shape or form soft.

He's an excellent a signing, big aggressive forward, only problem would be his fitness, but the backroom staff did wonders with Ta'ai so I have full confidence they will get Kaufusi into a beast

Maybe Ukuma will be moved up to front row now,that means 4 big props,then we have Channy,Brett,Chris Bailey,Bruno,Larne and the other fringe players (Fairbank,Mullally etc) battling out to be the back row.

Watch out SL 2014.
