Sione Vili Faumuina is probably best described as a polarising character with undoubted raw talent who excelled at basketball as a young man also. Professionally Sione started at the Canberra Raiders in 2001 where he played 11 games and scored 2 tries in his debut season. Suffering with home sickness Sione opted to return home to Auckland rather than extend his contract with Canberra, taking on the roll of ball playing forward from the departed Ali Lauiti'iti. Sione signed with the Warriors, begining his tenure in 2002 through to 2006. Sione debuted for the Warriors in 2002 against the Newcastle Knights in round 3 and he would go onto play a further 87 NRL matches for the Warriors. Sione's time unfortunately was peppered with off field incidents bringing himself, his club and the sport unwanted attention. In 2009 Warriors CEO took the unusual step of publicly stating that the Warriors would never resign Sione after his raft of offield incidents. These incidents included a drunken fight with former union 7's player Alan Bunting in a Whakatana bar in 2004. Six months later a Warriors fan was accosted by a drunken and bloodied Sione at an Auckland ATM. The club fined Sione $20,000 and ordered him to attended an alcoholism course. In 2005 Sione was again in hot water with the club after turning up drunk to a club awards dinner and also soon after at a club testimonial dinner for club legend Awen Guttenbiel in which Sione got drunk, verbally abused club leader and game legend Ruben Wiki and then NRL coach Ivan Cleary. The final straw came in agust after a game against the Roosters in which he abused Warriors fans seeking a photograph with the injured star. Coach Cleary was also abused when he confronted Sione about his conduct towards the fans. Upon learning of his dismissal Sione sent threatening text messages to Sunday News reporter Neil Reid. Sione recieved a life line when the London Harlequins offered him a contract to play in the ESL. In preseason training both parties agreed to tear up the contract. Sione found a new club in the ESL with the Hull FC club for the 2005 and 2006 seasons however injuries ment he only played 2 games for Hull. In 2007 Sione signed for the Cowboys in the NRL and played 33 games for the Cowboys over the next two seasons and again off field troubles followed Sione at the Cowboys which involved the police and a one car vehicle accident. Sione signed for the Castleford Tigers  in 2009 and played 18 games for them before both parties agreed to terminate Sione's contract. Sione returned to Australia and switched codes to the Norths Eagles in Brisbane. New Zealand netballer and golden girl Temepara George and Sione were involved for sometime before a very public breakup. Sione returned to rugby league with the Tannum Sandz Gullaz in the North Queensland competition.

Nicknamed "the F dude".

Granny gate. Thats how many will remember Nathan. But he has played 20 tests for New Zealand, his naturised country, won 1 four nations title and won a world cup all for New Zealand. Born in Mt Isa in Queensland, Nathan attended Blackheath and Thornburgh colleges. Nathan signed for the North Queensland Cowboys in began his professional career with them in 2000 making his debut against the Penrith Panthers. By 2001 Nathans form was good enough to warrent inclusion in the Queensland state of origin team. Nathan would come off the bench for his one and only origin match in game two of the series. Queensland won the series that season. After 91 games for the Cowboys Nathan found himself unwanted by North Queensland, but he was quickly signed by the New Zealand Warriors to a three year deal which was eventually extended to a four year contract. By 2008 Nathan was informed by the Warriors that he was no longer required by the club and was given permission to begin talks with other clubs. In 2009 Huddersfield made a large offer for Nathan after initially making a play for Todd Carney but his visa application was turned down so Nathan became the number 1 option for the Giants. Nathan approached the Warriors for a release from the final year of his contract. He had his request turned down after the Warriors had recently released fellow halves parnter Grant Rovelli. However on june 30 2009 it was announced that Nathan would be released to join St George Illawarra Dragons for the remainder of the 2009 season. The move to the Dragons proved to be a fruitfull one for player and club with the Dragons winning the 2010 NRL title with Fien playing at hooker. Nathan is signed to the Dragons until 2013. In 2006 Nathan began his international career with the Kiwis through residency and his grand mother. Media investigation would reveal that infact Nathans New Zealand grand mother was his great grand mother and thus making him ineligible for the Kiwis and the Kiwis lost it's two points for beating Great Britian in the tri series as ruled by the IRLF, the sports governing body. Nathan retired from international rugby league after the 2012 ANZAC test loss to Australia.
