Why Leilani Latu chose Warrington

Drew Darbyshire

Warrington’s new prop Leilani Latu says he just couldn’t turn down the opportunity to link up with the club.

The 26-year-old has joined the Wolves on a two-year deal from NRL side Gold Coast Titans, where he played nine games last season.

Latu 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.”
