FuiFui not ready to retire

FuiFui MoiMoi says he is keen to play on for another year or more after signing with the Toronto Wolfpack.

The Tongan prop is the biggest name the new Canadian club have signed so far for 2017.

MoiMoi turned 37 in September but has no signs of slowing down.

“I don’t know, I will just keep playing until my body says its had enough,” he told Love Rugby League.

“Everyone that plays rugby league when they retire their body tells them when they’ve had enough and at the moment my body is telling me to keep going.”

MoiMoi had a health scare earlier this year and was admitted to hospital after picking up a serious infection. But the front-rower said he has recovered well.

“It’s getting better, I was back playing footy after that,” MoiMoi said.

“My body’s better after it and hopefully it’ll stay better.”

The forward had two years with Leigh in the Championship after spending 11 years in the NRL with Parramatta.

At Toronto he will link up again with former Leigh coach Paul Rowley.

“It was a last minute call [from Toronto] and a few of my teammates are going there too,” he said.

“It was a last minute call and I’m really excited.”

MoiMoi is hoping his experience can help the Wolfpack and help grow rugby league in Canada.

“It’s not as big over there as it is in Australia so hopefully me and the other players can go over, the experienced players, and build up their rugby league and do well in Canada,” he said.

“It’s a very exciting challenge.”
