Utah Warriors Comments

“Tomasi is a guy that I know the coaches have had their eye on for a while,” said Warriors’ prop ‘Olive Kilifi, Tonga’s former coach with the Utah Selects. “So for him to come in and do what he did as a member of the Selects went a long way to helping him earn a spot on the MLR Roster. He obviously has a lot of talent and I’m confident he can be one of those guys that makes a jump from the Selects to the Pros like we saw last year with guys like Joe Mano and James [Vaifale].”
