Tuivasa-Sheck Quits Rugby Union to Rejoin Warriors

Ben H / 21 April 2023

New Zealand rugby union and rugby league international Roger Tuivasa-Sheck has put pen to paper on a three-year deal with the New Zealand Warriors and will make his NRL comeback after leaving the league in 2021 to play rugby union.

The Warriors agreed to release Tuivasa-Sheck early from his contract during the 2021 NRL season and the player made three Test appearances for the All Blacks the following year, his first full year as a rugby union pro.

Before he joins the Warriors, Tuivasa-Sheck will finish his season with the Blues in the Super Rugby Pacific. He should be available for selection for the All Blacks too when the Rugby World Cup kicks off in September in France.

A Popular Figure with Fans and Players

Warriors chief executive Cameron George was delighted to welcome back Tuivasa-Sheck back to the club, calling the Mount Smart Stadium, the player’s home. George said that when the 29-year-old left the Warriors to play rugby union, they made sure he knew he would always be welcome back if he wanted to return to the club. The Warriors’ chief executive said the 2019 Golden Boot winner was a fan favourite and a popular figure in the dressing room.

The former Warriors star joined the club from the Sydney Roosters in 2016, where he won the premiership in 2013. After joining the Warriors, the athletic back went on to play 111 NRL games for the Auckland-based side, the club he will soon rejoin. He was also the captain of the side and has appeared in 20 rugby league Tests for New Zealand.
