NRLW Players: Losana Lutu

Touted as one of the game's rising stars, 19-year-old Losana Lutu has enjoyed a rapid rise to professional rugby league.

A Campbelltown Collegians junior, Lutu only joined the club’s Tarsha Gale side during the 2022 season and has quickly made a name for herself.

She starred in last season’s Harvey Norman Women’s Premiership winning side, debuted for Parramatta Eels in the NRLW, made back-to-back appearances in the NSW Under-19’s Origin team, and of course made her Wests Tigers NRLW debut in July.

Losana is proud of her efforts in such a short space of time and is excited about the future.

“Honestly all I wanted to do was play Tarsha Gale since it was my first season and I didn’t think about playing representative football,” said Lutu.

Winning the competition and then being selected for rep teams and getting that NRLW contract was something I am really proud of.

“I didn’t think I’d get the chance to play Origin this year because I was injured but when I got the call, I was really happy.”

The Fijian-born playmaker is eager to develop her game and learn off those around her.

“The team has a lot of experienced NRLW players and experienced coaching staff so that really helps build my confidence and knowledge of the game,” she said.

“My step-up to Harvey Norman last year opened my eyes to what I can do on the field, and how much I can learn from my teammates and coaches.

A strong runner of the ball, Losana enjoys getting ‘early ball’, allowing her extra time to execute her skills.  She says video analysis is also helping her improve her game.

“I really try and put my best foot forward all the time,” said Lutu.

“If I make mistakes, I will re-watch videos and aim to be better next time around.”

Lutu is grateful for the opportunities Wests Tigers is providing her and other young women in rugby league.

“I don’t think you see as much of this in a lot of other clubs,” she said.

“Wests Tigers really does focus on the development of junior players which shows in our women’s program, and it’s really exciting.

“It is something I’m grateful for and to be part of that pathway is awesome.”

Lutu returns from a knee injury to line up against the Sydney Roosters in Round 6 of the NRLW on Saturday at Allianz Stadium.
