Widnes' Wellington Albert offered support after Kato Ottio's death

Footage was posted in PNG of Marum and the Hunters players wearing their 2017 Grand Final t-shirts at a gathering outside Ottio's family house, from where his body was taken to a funeral home. He was unconscious and in a coma and they were not able to revive him.

"Moreover, in all of our interactions with him, we found Kato to be a person of great character, who was excited to be following his dreams".

'This news is all the more tragic, because Kato was due to travel to the United Kingdom this week to fulfil his dream of playing first-grade rugby league, ' Rule continued.

Ottio was initially offered a train and trial deal with the Raiders, impressing the coaching staff enough to play in the Auckland Nines and secure a permanent contract.

Widnes chief executive James Rule said: "We are devastated to learn that Kato Ottio has passed away this afternoon".

The centre had only taken up rugby league at the end of 2014 before the Raiders spotted the former volleyball star playing for the PNG Hunters in the Queensland Cup in 2015. My thoughts go out to his family.

Canberra coach Ricky Stuart said: "Receiving the devastating news this morning knocked me for six".

"We suspended Hunters training effective as of yesterday when we saw that he (Kato) wasn't well".

"It's hard to believe because we had just got bedding and other things like crockery today for the place where he and Wellington were going to live. On behalf of the coaching team, staff and players at Widnes Vikings, I would like to offer our honest condolences to Kato's loved ones".

He signed for Canberra Raiders in February 2016 and played for the club's feeder team, the Mount Pritchard Mounties.
