The game of rugby is in the blood for Phoenix Laulu-Togagae.
“I’ve been playing rugby league since I was five and started playing union when I was in Year 7, says Phoenix.
“My dad has basically taught me all I know about rugby in general but my school coaches were the ones who taught me how to play rugby union. My dad and my whole family plays rugby and it's a big part of my Samoan heritage.”
Originally an outside centre, Phoenix moved to full-back when he played First XV at school.
