He has the potential to be the next Dave Taylor, and with some already spouting out names like ‘Wrecking Ball’ or ‘Barnstormer’, he may well get the chance to show just that – with Toka Likiliki signing a 2-year deal with the Newcastle Knights.
Likiliki, 19, will join his older brother at the club, Siuatonga Likiliki, who has been at the club since the NYC grade.
Although traditionally viewed as a prop forward, Likiliki impressed Knights officials, with his ability to cover a large number of positions, from prop to back-row to wing, and others.
“We look forward to welcoming Toka to our Club for the next two seasons,â€ CEO Matt Gidley said.
â€œToka is an explosive player with genuine size and versatility and will bring a real point of difference to our squad.â€
