I do wonder about what goes through some players’ minds when they are a highly paid full time professional sportsman. You’d have to work your backside off in some high end profession or do something highly illegal to get that money elsewhere, and some can’t stay out of Maccy D’s....

Anyway the point about getting Koni into space is really valid; he will be so much more effective whatever his weight if the team can play for him. Not good enough to give it to him when everyone else is out of ideas and expect him to charge through the whole opposition tram.

Get him 1-1 or even 1-2 in good ball and he’ll cause all sorts of problems. Using him as a battering ran out of heavy traffic just gasses him.

To understand it, you need to study human behaviour. Koni obviously likes putting bad things in his body ( this is an essay in itself). But Leeds signed him for 3 years when he was overweight, and not able to get an NRL gig as a result. So in his mind, they knew what c they were getting, and he plays well on the whole so gets away with it.
Now he needs a new contract, so does something about it. He'll be awesome this year if he keeps the weight off. Faster, less injury prone, better recovery times. Win win.....

I thought gold coast wanted to keep him but we offered him silly money? I didnt think he was that over weight when he made his debut for us. I reckon a combination of his conscience, a bollicking and the desire for a new contract have all contributed to the weight loss.

Agreed, I’d have him coming off the bench when teams are tired with Sutcliffe covering many other positions but main being centre.

Hopefully king can bring a bit of that power of the bench if he gets a look in.

If we can get him early ball against isolated defenders he will run riot. Less forwards work will hopefully reduce his errors too. I hope he'll get a contract extension for a couple of years. May not be the best player but is great to watch

He wants to drop 10kg so he can play at 110kg! That is bigger than ava and holroyd!

As far I know he is about 108 kg. Though I think he should have a few extra kilos of muscle so he can have the extra smashing power. Otherwise he is fine the way he is.

According to the Rhinos hand book Koni is 119kg 18st 7lb.Broadbent down as 5 ft 9, I have been told this is way out of date and is now nearer 6ft.
