Former NRL and Wallabies star Lote Tuqiri will now help workers under the Pacific Australia Labour Mobility scheme to make a smooth transition in Australia after being engaged by Agri Labour Australia as its new cultural ambassador.

Tuqiriโ€™s role will see him involved in community engagement and helping to ensure workers are supported in their life and work in Australia.

The 42-year-old says there are a lot of positives coming to work there as part of the PALM scheme and he is happy to help.

Managing Director of Agri Labour Australia, Casey Brown says Tuqiri is a role model for Pacific islanders and his experience would resonate with the workers.

He says they have engaged Tuqiri because he has been there and came over to Australia as a young man with a dream.

Tuqiri who was raised in Namatakula, moved to Australia with his family at the age of 15 before going on to enjoy a successful sporting career in which he represented Australia and Fiji in rugby league and the Wallabies in rugby union.
