'I fell to my knees and started crying' - Pulu

Vodafone Warriors TV caught up with Aucklander Leivaha Pulu to learn more about one of the club's eight signings for the 2018 NRL season.

This is a story of sacrifice and tears before Pulu made his NRL debut at the advanced age of 25 only last year.

Listen to the man known as 'Vaha' as he recounts his long journey and the joy of being back home in Auckland to join the Vodafone Warriors and be close to his extended family.

He also talks about the depth of feeling when he was able to represent Mate Ma'a Tonga against Fiji in May this year.
