Sona Taumalolo

Back where he belongs

The Tongan cult hero won 61 caps for the Magpies between 2005 and 2011 and is looking forward to donning the black and white hoops once again.

"It feels great to be back here. This is where I belong, where I start all my career from and for me coming back it's kind of exciting and I'm happy to be back."

The former 'Ikale Tahi international departed New Zealand after winning a Super Rugby title with the Chiefs in 2012, with the dynamic front rower collecting an impressive nine tries during their championship campaign.
