4 February: Tribute to Nene Va'alepu

The day Nene Va'alepu took on prop Reg Goodes sticks out in Henry Smith's mind. Va'alepu, Northern United's centre, came up against the hulking Poneke prop during a club match a few years back and Smith, his captain, said there was no chance the much slighter man was going to give way. "Nene was one of the smallest guys out there, but he had the biggest heart," Smith recalled. "To him, it didn't matter how big they [opponents] were and Reg Goodes was pretty big. Nene muscled up and put him backwards. It gave everyone a huge lift." Read more here
