RIP Kato Ottio

Kato Ottio is now resting in peace at home in his mother’s village of Tatana.

After a short sermon and prayer by Henry Ottio, the rugby league star’s coffin was lowered into the tomb just before 1pm today in the Arutu clan area of the village.

The scorching sun did nothing to stop the hundreds who turned up to say their final goodbyes to a man whose death has moved a whole country and the rugby league world.
