Sterling predicting Fotuaika to be top of the props

Moeaki Fotuaika often goes under the radar.

He goes about his work without fuss and rarely puts in a bad performance - and that's just the way he likes it.

Peter Sterling says he expects Fotuaika to well and truly land on the radar of all league followers in the coming seasons.

The former Parramatta halfback and outgoing Channel 9 commentator has long been considered one of the best analytic minds in the game.

According to Sterling, Fotuaika is on a path to becoming the best forward in the NRL.

"I think in five years time, he will be the best front rower in the game," Sterling told Wide World of Sports. 

"Payne Haas is probably acknowledged as the best young forward coming through, but Moe Fotuaika already has a pass and footwork in his game and he is only going to get better.

Fotuaika sends the Titans into the finals in style

"He has already played Origin as well and I thought that his effort against the Roosters (in the finals) saw him take an elite step forward.

 "He's only young and still only a baby when it comes to being a front rower in the NRL."

Fotuaika claimed the Paul Broughton Medal as the Titans best and fairest in 2019 as a 19-year old.  In the two seasons following, Fotuaika's consistency has continued as he finished runner up to Brian Kelly (2020) and Tino Fa'asuamaleaui (2021) in the following counts.

The 21-year-old committed to the Titans long-term this season in a move that will see him stay at the club for the next three seasons.

In just his fourth season in the NRL, Fotuaika played 22 games this season, averaging 143 running metres per game as he continued to lead the Titans go-forward.
