Leeds’ new recruit Zane Tetevano will be a “great addition” to Leeds, according to former Rhinos forward Adam Cuthbertson.

New Zealand and Cook Islands international Tetevano has joined the Rhinos on a three-year contract from NRL Grand Finalists Penrith Panthers.

Cuthbertson, who has signed for Championship side York ahead of the 2021 campaign, played alongside Tetevano for Newcastle Knights in the NRL between 2012-14 and believes he will do good things in Super League.

Cuthbertson said: “He will be great. He is the ultimate professional.

“I spent a bit of time with him at Newcastle. We were a bit younger back then but he has come a long way Zane.

“He is a really good turnaround story in the sense where he sort of fell out at Newcastle and found his feet again through playing local park rugby in the Central Coast district. He worked hard, found himself a gig at the Roosters where he has played a number of Grand Finals since.

“He works really hard and he will be a great addition to the Leeds team.”
