The towering 29-year-old has already been tipped by Head Coach Richard Hill to make a massive impression to match his big frame this season in the English top-flight.
Taulava also speaks passionately about taking his 'big opportunity' at Warriors and his rugby path from New Zealand to the Warriors that has seen both highs and lows.
Just a few years ago, Taulava's future was in the balance and he was forced to take a year out of game when he suffered a serious neck injury.
However, after showing his resolve and determination to come back, he recovered and came to the UK determined to take his chance.
He first tore it up at Worthing before joining Midlands neighbours Birmingham & Solihull - making club debut against Worcester just a few seasons ago.
A switch to Rotherham saw him continue to turn heads as he climbed the league ladder before this summer he was handed the chance he craved and a move to the Aviva Premiership with Warriors.
"This is my big opportunity," said Taulava. "It took a lot longer than I thought, I have had a few years in the RFU Championship, but now I can step up and show what I can do.
"I am ready to take my chances and I'm ready to go. I want to impress this year and do my best to stay here for the long run."
Taulava joined up with his new team-mates for the first time this week after spending his summer in the Southern Hemisphere with English-born wife Amy and baby daughter Elisa.
"I went back home to see the family with my little girl," he revealed. "We have a one-year-old so the whole reason for going back was to see the family and let them meet my daughter.
"She had her first birthday over there so it was quite special to go and see everyone. Home is pretty much New Zealand for me, but my mum and dad still live in Tonga so we went back there too.
"It's a long old way though, and I don't think I will be doing it for the next few years. The focus is now on Warriors."
Taulava's huge frame will make him instantly recognisable to his new fans and he will also become one of the Aviva Premiership's biggest stars.
And he is confident with the hard work - and early starts - he is doing now with the strength and conditioning team he will be in the best shape of his career come the start of the new season.
"It's been a great first week in with the boys," said Taulava. "I know Rob O'Donnell well from Titans and also the young fellas Dave (Tevita Taumoepeau) and Leki (Aleki Lutui). But it only took me two or three days to get on with everyone else; they are a good bunch of boys.
"Training and the intensity is a big step up, I have noticed the difference, but I am enjoying it already," he added.
"There is a lot of work to be done personally; it is something that I will be benefiting from when the season starts.
"I missed the hill sprints in the first few weeks, but I will be doing a lot more extras with Stu (Pickering) and his team. I will be having some early starts to contend with and I'm in at 7am with Dean (Schofield) and a few of the lads who have now joined.
"It will have a massive impact on me. It is a level of intensity that is new to me, but everyone is working so hard. It is hard work and I know it will benefit me in the long run. I'm loving it!"
"I have watched a lot of Aviva Premiership rugby. When I was back in New Zealand, and was injured and away from the game for a couple of seasons, this was the dream.
"I have always wanted to play at the highest level that I can. The chance to play in top-flight is very exciting and I can't wait to hopefully test myself against the very best players in England.
Taulava's natural ball carrying skills are evident to anyone who has seen the big man in action in recent seasons.
However, his handling ability and skill set are also renowned, particularly for a man of his size, and he revealed the enjoyment he had taken from working with new Attack Coach Mathieu Rourre during his first week at Sixways.
"I have enjoyed the coaching here and the style of rugby we are going to be playing. It is very entertaining, the ball will be moving a lot," he concluded.
"We have had Mathieu in this week and he is very direct. It's good and I like his style. He knows what he wants and how he wants it.
"People know me as a big ball carrying back row but this new style suits me, I am really happy about it.
"The way we are going to play this year is going to bring out all these little things that I couldn't really get to show at Rotherham last year."
