LOWKEY SILK OF THE WEEK: Uncle Peta

Jackson Thomas

Every week YKTR will tip a bloke who is flying under the only radar that actually counts; the silk radar.

Someone who is being slept on but has a fair bit about their game who we reckon deserves some overdue respect.
 
Round 17: Peta Hiku

How the fuck is this bloke only 27?

One of Scope and Fozzy's favourites, the Warriors centre is all silk at the moment.

In a side that has struggled since he arrived, Hiku is consistently one of the Warriors' best.

One year he plays right centre, David Fusitu'a leads the NRL in try scoring.

Last year he jumps over to the left, and Maumalo leads to the comp.

There's few centres in the game who position their outside men better than uncle Pet.

And he does it all while looking as cruisey as ever.

Slept on speed, good offload and can play anywhere in the back line. 
 
Guuun.
