Tui Lolohea was dropped for Saturday’s defeat at Catalans Dragons

Leeds Rhinos coach Dave Furner says he was happy with the reaction of Tonga international Tui Lolohea to being dropped.

The 24-year-old former New Zealand Warrior was a high-profile close-season signing from Wests Tigers after being earmarked to fill the vacant stand-off role with the Rhinos.

But, after starting the first seven matches of his debut Super League season, Lolohea was left out of the side to play Catalans Dragons in Perpignan last Saturday, with Furner opting to switch the versatile Liam Sutcliffe from the pack to play alongside scrum-half Richie Myler.
