Let’s travel together.

Felise Kaufusi’s father, Taniela, passes away after battle with illness


Melbourne’s Felise Kaufusi will miss this week’s game against Penrith following the tragic death of his father, Taniela.

The Dolphins-bound backrower missed a month of action in the middle of the season – including the State of Origin decider – to travel to America to be with his father, who has been hospitalised in Los Angeles.

Kaufusi had returned to the Storm a couple of weeks ago, playing for the first time in a month.

“Our thoughts are with the Kaufusi family during this time.”
