Tofilau: the Capras' Jonah Lomu

RUGBY LEAGUE: Give Ken Tofilau a look at the line and he is odds on to score.

The stats back it up too, after the Rockhampton Leagues Club CQ Capras winger notched his 10th try in 11 games at the weekend.

His powerful low-built frame allows him to barge his way over, his speed and finishing ability all noteworthy.

The softly-spoken Kiwi, who grew up idolising Jonah Lomu and Jarryd Hayne, said he is really enjoying his start to the year.

"I am happy. The boys inside me are working really hard, they look after me,” the 20-year-old said.

"I do try and get in the middle and get involved in the game. I like helping out the forwards.

"My form is pretty good, I just have to work a bit more on my fitness and strength.”

Tofilau, who helps the region's disabled at the Endeavour Foundation, has struck up a good friendship with his inside centre Justin Tavae.

It is no wonder the pair gel together so well on the field. They are part of a dangerous left side attack, aided by Jack Madden and Guy Williams, which has seen the two wide men cross the chalk 16 times this year.

"Justin is great to play outside of, we are good mates and he sets me up well,” he said.

"I love being here. Justin and Chanel Seigafo are great.”

Like his childhood heroes, Tofilau still wants to play on the biggest stages, and under Kim Williams, he believes his game has gone to another level.

"I remember watching Jonah and Jarryd and loved the way they played,” he said.

"NRL is definitely still the dream, probably a little way off still so I am just enjoying being here right now.

"Kim has been great, he is always in my ear. I find it hard to talk in defence but I am getting better and better.”
