Biography:

‘Fus’ is now the longest-serving Vodafone Warrior in the club's current NRL squad, having made his NRL debut as long ago as 2014.

He was among the group of players who returned home for family reasons during the Covid-19 affected 2020 season but before doing so he made his 100th appearance for the Vodafone Warriors, becoming the 24th player to do so.

His early exit from the campaign meant he had his quietest season since 2015, playing just seven times and scoring only one try.

'Fus' now ranks fifth on the club's all-time list of try scorers with 61 in 103 games leaving him behind Manu Vatuvei (152), Stacey Jones (77), Shaun Johnson (63) and Simon Mannering (63).

The Mate Ma'a Tonga international had his best season for the club in 2018 when he became the first Vodafone Warriors player to top the NRL's regular season try-scoring charts with 22 tries in 22 appearances. That earned him the Dally M top try-scorer's award and he then made it 23 tries in 23 games for the season when he added another try in the week one finals match against Penrith.

'Fus' marked the offseason by becoming a father when his wife Eden gave birth to the couple's daughter Jordan in November.
