Please everyone, lets just stick to exactly what Vastman wants you to post.

Most disappointing in recent times for me has to be A Tupou having watched him in the NRL I was excited to see him sign, not through lack of effort but his body was shot and it showed.

Kevin Locke another in recent times, purely on ability was an exciting signing, it's not often we sign a player of his calibre, showed a few glimpses of what he could do be we all know how his tenure ended.

Ian Kirke, although not overhyped was an absolute shambles of a signing for us.

Not a disappointed players performance as such, but disappointed that we never saw him play for us.
Paul Taylor came to us from Oldham, a tough aussie scrum half. who when I heard he was coming to Wakey thought we had made a great signing. Unfortunately got injured in his first game for us (in the few minutes of his debut) and returned to aus.


He did play at Oldham but came to us from Parramatta.
He's been in the news recently as he fell on hard times and has been living on the streets.

Ryan Tongia. Had some flashes of brilliance from FB and the wing from those last few games of 2011 then just disappeared of e face of the earth.

He was, I think because he was part of the all conquering Wigan team miracles were expected.

He was a window cleaner by day, and when Grandstand used to give players occupations he put down Visual Technician, made me laugh then and still does, the BBC fell for that one.

Remember Tongia being pretty good and I think he went into modelling? Hard to recall but I’m sure he left to pursue a career outside rugby league. Strange as I thought he looked promising.

Just googled and he left wakey in 2011 and there is some modelling references for 2013. He then pops up to play union in 2014.
