Tributes flood in for former Wigan Warriors star Inga Tuigamala following his passing

Tributes have flooded in for former Wigan Warriors star Inga Tuigamala following his recent passing.

The Samoan powerhouse made over 100 appearances for the Lancashire club in the 1990s before making the move to rugby union side Wasps.

Apollo Perelini tweeted: “Saddest news to hear. We started primary school together and took our rugby journey to the UK. @Saints1890 for me and @WiganWarriorsRL for you my brother. RiL my dearest brother Inga (the winger) Tuigamala @Jason15Robinson

Nicknamed Inga the Winger, Tuigamala made the move to Wigan in 1993, earning two caps for the Samoan rugby league side during his time at Central Park.

Tuigamala, who could play both centre and winger, moved to Wasps and was then involved in the record-breaking £1m transfer to the Newcastle Falcons.

Never one to take a backwards step and with an aggressive and physical side to his play, Tuigamala struck fear into the hearts of opponents. Combined with his wicked pace, it was a recipe for success and enjoyed some incredibly fruitful times with the Warriors.

He has sadly passed away at the age of 52.

Everyone at Serious About Rugby League passes on their sincere condolences.
