I think he would have transitioned into second row for sure. Had the perfect combination of size and speed for it. Imagine him hitting holes off an SJ short ball..

A number of people from our club contacted all the admins of that page since it went online venting about that dick head's post - I've seen a number of ex player's from our club who played age group league with Sonny post up on FB threatening that dick head's well being - it wouldn't surprise me if someone finds him and confronts him in the flesh, over this - Social Media has a long reach.

Just read that article. I don't know what was written and don't really care to know but bringing up Sonny like what was described is pretty poor taste. He died a hero.

Guys really need to think when they post stuff like that. The way stuff spreads on social media nowadays its going to reach his family. They have been through enough losing a son/brother.

His response:

To everyone in VW

I apologised yesterday in a thread but not too sure if everyone saw it. I am truly sorry what has taken place the last 24 hours. If I had my time again, it would not have been posted. I especially didn't expect or want it gone viral but I suppose that's social media for you. I know it doesn't mean much but it was only intended for VW eyes only. No family members were tagged as some pages are suggesting.

I don't normally do these kind of posts as it is poor taste. I only did it as a kiwi member (not naming their name) was bagging the shit out of Alex from the Newcastle Knights as we all know will never walk again. I thought this was very poor form so I retaliated not thinking of the consequences and the fact I went lower than him. This is the only reason why I did it.

I don't know if it's true that this meme got back to his family or not but if it is, please pass on my apology as I have a family of my own and couldn't imagine losing a loved one in such a tragic circumstance. He is truly a hero for saving his cousin but losing his own life.

I have obviously copped a lot of threatening inboxes and comments. I understand why you're so upset but rest assured anymore comments or inboxes with death threats etc will be passed onto NSW Police and the AFP.

Again I am truly sorry and as the saying goes "who has not sinned cast the first stone".

That guy was a wanker and got what he deserved. Been doing that shit for ages now. It wasnt just one meme about Sonny as well. He made 3 that I saw. He had hundreds of messages and thats the only reason why he apologised. Before then he was quite proud of his trolling efforts.

He's well known in the social media game so he'll get whats coming to him...

Wasnt even him who started the Sonny Fai memes but he made them up and posted them instead of the guy who started it and only replied with them in another post about Alex McKinnon. Both idiots and disappointed a Kiwi would start it all with those Alex meme's...
Well I can see now that he has removed all his photos and is in hiding. Looks like he has lost all credit in his little sledge club and even mentioned his family are now worried about their safety. Threatening to run to the cops if he gets any more death threats.

Such a tragedy he was taken so early. I have no doubt he would've went on to greatness.

His heroic deed makes him legendary but he would have been great to watch as he matured. Second row/lock. Far out imagine that Kiwis back row with him part of it. They would be lethal.

Never forget the day he made SBW look like a goose, totally outplayed him and made him look average. That was only one instance of his skill.

Rest easy brother.
