The hard-running Tongan forward stands at 6 foot 5 and weighs 135kg, his destructive running delivering five tries in 21 Aviva Premiership appearances before joining Newcastle Falcons in the summer of 2016. Touching down a further 11 times in his 21 European outings prior to his move to the North East, Fonua arrived in England after seven seasons with French clubs Agen and Bayonne. Making his international debut in 2009, the back-row man played for Tonga during Rugby World Cup 2015 and was involved in the 2016 June internationals, scoring against Georgia and Samoa. His maiden campaign with the Falcons saw him playing 11 times in the 2016-17 Premiership, leaving his mark with a string of big carries and dominant collisions.
