Biography An explosive centre who took the NRL by storm in season 2004 with 18 tries in his 27 appearances in the blue-and-white.

His footwork and acceleration has stood up many opponents over the past few seasons and at his best, he is more than a handful.

Willie Tonga played eight games for Parramatta as a centre before joining the Bulldogs in 2004.

After making his first grade debut for the 'Dogs in his opening match against his former club, he went on to become a regular member of the NRL team. He was selected for Queensland and Australia in his initial season with the Bulldogs.

Willie has played two games for Queensland in 2004 and has played seven Tests for Australia.
