Since Viliame Kikau burst onto the NRL scene in 2017 he has cemented himself as one of the most destructive back-rowers in Rugby League.
He made his first-grade debut in Round 2 of the 2017 season, scoring a try off the interchange bench in the Panthers 32-2 victory over Wests Tigers.
He finished the year with nine NRL games to his name and his stunning form for the Panthers in the NSW Cup (now Canterbury Cup NSW) proved too good to ignore.
He inspired the Panthers to premiership glory, and he finished the campaign with seven tries, eight line-breaks, three try-assists, and 54 tackle-breaks.
His performance in Round 17 of that season may arguably be his finest performance in the competition, producing two tries, two try-assists, two line-breaks, nine tackle-breaks, 124m, and 18 tackles.
He has since made the left-edge his own at Penrith with 54 first-grade games, along with 11 appearances for Fiji, and will be instrumental if the Panthers are to return to finals football in 2020.
