    A big hitter seems to be rated by NQL fans and pundits alike.

    Personally prefer english forwards.
    Too many either big name flops or bit and pieces players taking up a quota slot like Paulo

    That said, If you are going to put your shilling into the NRL then he's the type of player to go for.
    Mid 20s , hungry, with boom and something to prove. Has a bit of the soliola about him.

    Glad its a pass on jason taumalolo.I'm in.

    I get the impression Tamou's agent was just using us (or the rumour about our interest) to get a better deal in Australia

    I think Molo has been good this year, he never seemed to get much game time in previous seasons but has looked a powerful runner in 2020

    Played in all of NQ Cowboys games last year and won awards at the club presentation I remember reading. Seems to have moved on from the incident a few years ago with James Ackerman.

    He’s an explosive player who would certainly add something different to what we currently have. It doesn’t seem to make sense he’d leave though when he’s just starting to make a real impression over there.

    Up until last year he was a bit part player but played every game in 2019.

    You're right I think he'd be in demand in the NRL. He's 25 and starting to look like a real impact player. Unless the Covid situation has caused huge salary problems for clubs ?

    Theres a chance that well be used as a stalking horse by every agent in the NRL with a prop on their books for the next few months.
    Forwards win games. The backs decide by how much.

    Looking at his highlieghts he looks more of a moscoe than a thompson kinda prop. Comes on as a wrecking ball for short spells

    It was in the paper the other week that Tamou wanted too much, we tried for another NRL prop however it looks like he was going to sign a contract to stay in the NRL, whether it was Molo or not I dont know.

    I'd take Molo! He has looked good this year and makes decent yards and is a big lad.

    Sadly on the Total RL article it says that his chances of joining us are slim as he's playing every week and been offered a new contract.

    Wonder if he's a descendant of Parco Molo.

    Meli is probably big enough for prop nowadays.

    Maybe " Molo " might just want to get away from his history for a couple of years.

    To be perfectly honest the same thing could happen at any time all it takes is a slip or someone else coming in throwing the player off balance and the intended hit can result in serious injury, which unless tackling is removed, is part and parcel of the game. We have had some big hitters who fortunately never ended with the same result.
