Genuine speedster Faamanatu Apineru was one of many local Premier Grade players promoted to NRC level by Perth Spirit coach Tai McIsaac in 2015, and in Apineru’s case, it was just reward for an outstanding season on the club scene.
The Kalamunda Bulls flyer crossed for an incredible 21 tries in just 17 matches to lead the try-scoring tallies in the Premier Grade in the west, and this translated to the NRC as well, with Apineru crossing for a double against Greater Sydney in the Spirit’s final match of the tournament.
