Masada Iosefa RIP

Former Penrith and Tigers hooker Masada Iosefa dies after quad bike accident

Former Panthers, Wests Tigers hooker and Samoan International Masada Iosefa has died following a tragic quad bike accident last night.

The talented hooker passed away just hours short of his 33rd birthday today and is being mourned by team-mates at Rockhampton, where he was set to captain the Emu Park team this season.

Born in Samoa, Iosefa moved to Sydney with his family at a young age and was a schoolboy star at Patrician Brothers’ College, Blacktown.

He was signed by Penrith and made 43 appearances between 2008 and 2011.

He then played for Wests Tigers in 2012-13, often filling in for star hooker Robbie Farah.

Iosefa also played two Tests for Samoa and was a member of the New Zealand World Cup squad.

Sad to hear this about one of our Panther family. So young for the Mayor of Mt Druitt to be gone RIP
