Wolves bring in NRL prop ahead of new season


WARRINGTON Wolves have signed prop Leilani Latu on a two-year deal.

Latu, 26, joins from Australian side Gold Coast Titans, having made 58 appearances in the NRL.

He said: “I’m looking forward to getting into training with the boys and creating some combinations with them.

“It’s an exciting brand of footy here and I couldn’t turn down the opportunity.

“I chose Warrington because of the quality of players and I have played with a couple of them back in the NRL too; Ben Murdoch-Masila and Sitaleki Akauola at Penrith and we had some success there.”

Wolves coach Steve Price has been public in his desire to bring in a prop forward, and attempts to sign Sydney Roosters prop Zane Tetavanu earlier in the off-season proved fruitless.

Tonga international Latu stands at 6’2” and weighs 112kg.

Price added: “We are always looking for quality rugby players to bring to our club and we feel Leilani fits that.

“I’m looking forward to working with him and developing his game during his time at Warrington as we feel there is a lot more he can bring to the game.”
