Top 10 centres of the decade 2010-2019

With nearly 150 Premiership matches to his name, Vereniki Goneva has built a reputation on his consistency and reliability. Even at the back end of his career, he has defied his age with regular star performances.

The prolific tryscorer is an expert finisher but is also very capable of setting up tries for his outside men. He was the 2015/2016 ERC Top Tryscorer and joint top tryscorer in 2017/2018 for Newcastle. The same year Goneva went on to be crowned the best player in the Aviva Premiership, at the ripe old age of 34.

In 2016 he became Fiji’s all-time top tryscorer and in 2019 he earned selection to his third World Cup. He also made our list for top 10 centres the past decade.

He is one of Fiji’s most decorated players and continues to put his hand up and represent his home nation.

In 2021 Goneva is with Mont de Marsan in the Pro D2
