Opeti Fonua (born 26 May 1986) is a Tongan rugby union player who plays number 8 for French Top 14 club Bayonne, having transferred from Agen after Agen were relegated. Fonua is known for his immense size and strength, but also for his surprisingly high levels of speed and agility for his size (his official weight according to his Su Agen profile is 150kg), although in the past he has been listed as lighter. A highly physical player, both with and without the ball, Fonua is known for big tackles and strong carries.[1]
