Yep, since debuting in the WCC game in 2013, Tohu has been one of my absolute favourite players. I’ve said it a bunch of times, in a bunch of places - he embodies all of the great qualities this club aspires to.
Hard work. Selflessness. Humility. Pride.
He gave his all when on the field. Never let his teammates down. Off the field, even from those early days, he was reserved yet articulate when talking in front of a camera. Always knew what to say and how, a’la Cameron Smith.
I was deadset convinced T was destined to play out his career here and captain our great club. Maybe the path is different but I will still cling to hope that we see him back in purple one day.
I wish Tohu all the best at the Warriors. Most RL fans and commentators might not see it, but Tohu is just the type of player and person that I think the club needs to move in the right direction.
With the greatest of respect to Cronk and McLean, we will feel T’s loss more than the other big names we lost in 2017. I will continue to be bitter about losing Tohu for some time yet
Thanks for the memories T!
