Wests Tigers' Mosese Fotuaika dead at age 20

JUST days after the bombshell about Ben Barba, the rugby league community was again in shock on Thursday night at the death of promising Wests Tigers prop Mosese Fotuaika.

A NSW police spokesperson said officers from Holroyd area command were called to a townhouse in Merrylands about 6.50pm AEDT last night.

They confirmed a 20-year-old man was found dead inside the premises and said the death was not being treated as suspicious.

A report will be prepared for the coroner.

Fotuaika was a member of the Tigers 2012 premiership winning under 20s team and had been promoted to the club's NRL squad for this season.
