LEIGH forward Fuifui Moimoi will play in Sunday’s home game against London Broncos despite a family tragedy.

The 22-year-old nephew of the former Parramatta forward was this week found dead after an apparent shooting in the United States.

“We are staying close with Fuifui,” Centurions coach Paul Rowley said. “We will support him in what he wants to do.

“We’ll get Sunday’s game out of the way and if he wants to go to the funeral he will go with our blessing.”

Leigh’s head of rugby Derek Beaumont says Moimoi can have as much time off as he needs.
