Playing 14 games, he has crossed for five tries and set up another four, while averaging 166 metres per game. The 21-year-old, who was born in Auckland, is contracted to the Tigers until at least the end of 2025 and will continue to cement his position as the club's fullback with Laurie to depart at the end of this season.
Born in Auckland, Bula is eligible to play for Fiji, Samoa, New Zealand and Australia, while he could also represent Queensland - provided he doesn't pick the Kiwis in international rugby league given they are a Tier 1 nation.
Bula left New Zealand at the age of 13 when he and his family relocated to Queensland.
Speaking to The Sydney Morning Herald though, he said Origin is firmly on his radar - just not for the Maroons.
“I'm eligible for Queensland, but I don't know – I'd like to play for NSW,” he told the publication.
Coach Tim Sheens has been glowing in his praise for the young gun dating as far back as pre-season, and it's hardly a surprise given the talent he always possessed coming through the junior ranks.
Origin eligibility has been in the spotlight for many, many years now, with players regularly lining up for the state they weren't born in.
The NRL tightened and clarified the rules around Origin eligibility some years ago though, and it now appears unlikely that Bula would be able to play for the Blues given his relocation to Queensland at the age of 13.
