Tu’u Maori

Ex-Cronulla Sharks and Sydney Roosters star passes away aged 33 after battle with MND

Maori represented the Sydney Roosters in the Toyota Cup in 2008 – a stint which earned him a call-up to the Papua New Guinea World Cup squad in the same year.

Maori, who could play anywhere along the backline as well as at halfback, played for the Newtown Jets, the Roosters’ feeder club in the NSWRL Cup competition, in 2009.

The PNG international would then go on to play for the Cronulla Sharks in the 2011 NSW Cup.

His story has been best described by himself on his GoFundMe page:
