After a 2017 campaign that was delayed due to an ACL injury, Siosiua Taukeiaho entered the 2018 season with no concerns and was given the nod as the starting prop.
He had a consistent season in the forwards, setting the platform with hard running as well as plenty of hard work on the defensive end of the field.
Taukeiaho was selected for Tonga in the mid-season test match and returned to the Roosters with a spring in his step.
He was noticeably focused in the post season, which resulted in a string of strong performances from the Roosters forwards that set the platform for a grand final win.
Taukeaiho was again selected for Tonga in the post season and was their best on field in a test match against Australia at Mt Smart Stadium.
