Latu pleased with Warrington switch
Leilani Latu has revealed he chose to join Warrington due to the "exciting brand" of rugby on offer at the Halliwell Jones Stadium.
The Australian-born prop completed his move to the Wire earlier this week, putting pen to paper on a two-year contract that runs until the summer of 2021.
Latu has spent his entire career to date in the NRL with Gold Coast Titans and Penrith Panthers, but he admits he could not turn down the opportunity to move to Super League with Warrington.
"I'm looking forward to getting into training with the boys and creating some combinations with them," Latu told the Wolves website.
"It's an exciting brand of footy here and I couldn't turn down the opportunity."
There will also be some familiar faces in the dressing room for Latu, who enjoyed success playing alongside new Warrington team-mates Sitaleki Akauola and Ben Murdoch-Masila at Penrith.
"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," Latu added.
The 26-year-old will be hoping to get up to speed with his new team-mates quickly, with Warrington set to get their new Super League campaign underway with a trip to Wigan Warriors on January 30.
