Details emerge about Ottio's tragic passing
« on: January 09, 2018, 04:44:37 PM »
EXCLUSIVE: Kato Ottio’s desire to mentor his young Papua New Guinea teammates may have inadvertently led to the former Canberra Raider’s death today.

The league community is in shock after Ottio collapsed and died only days before being due to fly out and start a new career with English club Widnes.

The 23-year-old Ottio was in his homeland of Papua New Guinea and went on a gruelling eight kilometre run with fellow players from the Hunters Queensland Cup team.
