Rabbitohs new recruit Lote Tuqiri was straight into training today (Tuesday), catching up with Rabbitohs TV to talk about joining his new Club.
The dual international was proud to be joining the team at Redfern, citing that the boys have already made him feel welcome.
“I never thought that it would ever happen, but I’m here now and I feel good to be a part of the Club – the boys have taken me in pretty well,” Tuqiri said.
“It’s day one, so I’m really looking forward to a good year and hopefully getting out onto the field with the really good team that the Rabbitohs are.”
The Club may be new to him, but some of the faces weren’t, with former Tigers Joel Reddy and Matt Hyland both familiar to Lote.
“I think he (Joel Reddy) was one of the first people I saw, so it’s good to see a familiar face,” said Tuqiri.
Both Tuqiri and Reddy recently made cameo appearances in a Wiggles DVD, but despite the extra string to their bow, Tuqiri laughingly described their performance as ‘wooden’.
“We were just talking about the Wiggles DVD actually – how sort of ‘wooden’ we were, but other than that it’s good to see a familiar face.”
