Watson Filikitonga

Watson FIlikitonga is one of the local additions to the LA Giltinis squad. Tonga-born Filkitonga played American football growing up, impressing as a running back and linebacker. The powerful midfielder was convinced to give rugby a try by his older brother and USA Eagle Lemoto Filikitonga. After graduating high school in 2015, Filikitonga was considering attending college at the University of Hawaii. A call from Iona College coach Bruce McLane changed all that, with Filikitonga impressing for his college side as a ball-crashing centre.
