Wests Tigers winger Lote Tuqiris long list of achievements in senior football continues to grow.


Adding 150 NRL games to that list tonight, Tuqiri has also been nominated as a finalist for the Ken Stephen Medal.


In what is Tuqiris 15th season of professional football, the Fijian-born winger has not only worked hard to return from an arm injury, but also contributed greatly off the field.


The Ken Stephen Medal recognises players who have committed time off the field to community projects, with Tuqiri being named amongst the 15 finalists for the award.


Tuqiri has been part of a long list of community events this season including being a Blue September ambassador, the face of NSW/ACT Guide dogs and a high involvement in Women in League activities.





Wests Tigers Community Manager, Yvette Downey praised Tuqiri for his efforts this season.


Lote is a great ambassador for the Club, he gives his time willingly and is always happy to help out with any community or charity events, Downey said.


He is a very humble guy, always willing to give his time but more happy when people dont know about it.


Lote is never the one looking for accolades.


Voting takes very little time and we are asking Wests Tigers fans to get behind Lote, with the winner being announced at the annual One Community awards next month.
