‘I’m not really used to the drumming and singing’ – David Fusitu’a on his first Leeds Rhinos appearance and reactions from supporters

David Fusitu’a made his debut for the Leeds Rhinos yesterday – and it couldn’t have gone any better.

The winger proved a massive hit out wide for the West Yorkshire side and, though he didn’t score, Leeds fans saw enough of the hulking Tongan winger to be excited for the season ahead.

And, Fusitu’a spoke to Rhinos TV about just how good it was to get out onto the field in front of a buzzing Headingley crowd – though he was taken aback by the famous South Stand Band!

“It was awesome to get a little blowout before the season starts,” Fusitu’a said.

“I was just trying to focus on my first involvement and let the game flow from there.

“It’s been awesome training with the boys but it’s been even better running out with them and pulling on this proud jersey.

“I’m ready for the new challenge and the boys are doing awesome – I’m not really used to the drumming and singing so it was a pretty cool experience!”

The 27-year-old revealed just how honoured he is to play for Leeds in the upcoming season.

“I’ve travelled all this way and I can’t wait to play for a proud club like Leeds.

“I’m just going out there trying to do my job and do my best for the team and my boys.

“It’s a long season so hopefully I can keep that up.”
