“Words can’t describe how I’m feeling right now,” former teammate Frank Pritchard said in an Instagram post. “The Field announcer at the [Penrith] Panthers when reading the team list would say at number 9 is the Mayor of Mounty County Masada Iosefa. Tough as nails, always went hard without any preservation for his body.
Never took a step back to any situation. Always had my back from the get-go. May you fly high now n kick it till we meet again.”
According to the Northern Territory Police, Fire and Emergency Services, the incident happened on Mckinlay Road. Someone came upon the scene after it happened and called the authorities.
The initial report says that the man ‘failed to negotiate a bend, colliding with a guard rail, and rolled the bike.’ The authorities said that he was not wearing a helmet at the time of the accident.
He played for the Penrith Panthers and the Wests Tigers. He also represented Somoa in two matches.
The Courier Mail is reporting that following his playing career, he went on to be a youth worker in Queensland.
