Warrington Wolves have confirmed the signing of Leilani Latu from Gold Coast Titans on a two-year-deal.

Latu made his NRL debut in 2015 for Penrith Panthers and then moved to the Gold Coast in 2018.

The Tongan international has amassed 58 appearances in the NRL to date.

He was made available by the Titans, and there was a number of Super League clubs in for him.

Warrington head coach Steve Price said: “We are always looking for quality rugby players to bring to our club and we feel Leilani fits that.

“I’m looking forward to working with him and developing his game during his time at Warrington as we feel there is a lot more he can bring to the game.”

Latu added on signing for the Wire: “I’m looking forward to getting into training with the boys and creating some combinations with them.

“It’s an exciting brand of footy here and I couldn’t turn down the opportunity. 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.”
