Tuqiri expected to play in NRL season opening match

SYDNEY, - Lote Tuqiri is adamant he can still be a force as he readies to debut for South Sydney 15 years after his NRL debut.

The 34-year-old dual international was one of the game's most devastating runners in his early career with Brisbane but injuries have severely curtailed him since he returned to the NRL in 2010 after seven years in rugby union.

Only signed by Souths in late January after a short stint with English rugby union's Leicester Tigers, Tuqiri is expected to play in Thursday's showcase NRL season-opening match against premiers Sydney Roosters, due to a host of injuries in the Rabbitohs pre-season training camp.

The Namatakula, Nadroga man managed just 25 games in his previous three seasons with Wests Tigers due mainly to complications with a broken arm.
