Joseph Manu

Taumata Soloman

Some may already know who this mural is dedicated to, but for anyone who is not sporty-minded this is Joseph Manu, a New Zealand-born professional rugby league player.

He plays as winger and centre for the Sydney Roosters in the NRL and New Zealand at international level.

He was raised in Tokoroa and played his junior rugby league for Tokoroa High School before being signed by the Sydney Roosters.

This mural in Tokoroa was created by local teacher Taumata Soloman.

He says, "Thank you once again to you and your team at Chorus for the opportunity. Had some awesome feedback from the locals while I was there and they were stoked to see Joseph Manu being painted. They were really proud."
