Maroons debutant Joe Ofahengaue

Joe tells his dad: 'I want to put Ofahengaue name on map again'

Josh is the brother of 1991 World Cup-winning Wallaby star Willie Ofahengaue who was one of rugby union's most feared forwards in the 1990s.

When Joe Ofahengaue moved to Australia with his family from New Zealand when he was eight years old, his uncle's fame and the Ofahengaue name was front and centre of the sporting landscape.

Joe has done plenty to keep it there as a Broncos powerhouse and Tongan international but playing for the Maroons, his childhood dream, will make his family name part of sport's greatest rivalry.
