Roger Tuivasa-Sheck has played his last game for the Warriors.

Tuivasa-Sheck finished up with the Warriors last week. This enableed him to return home before the New Zealand government completely paused the Covid-19 travel bubble with Australia for at least eight weeks.

Tuivasa-Sheck has signed a two-year contract with New Zealand Rugby. This means next year he will play for the Blues and Auckland.

Tuivasa-Sheck joined the Warriors in 2016 after making 84 appearances for the Sydney Roosters. He finishes with 111 games and 30 tries in his six seasons with the Warriors. Overall he has made 195 NRL appearances and scored 58 tries.

Tuivasa-Sheck became the first Warriors player to win the coveted Dally M Medal in 2018 and he was awarded with the top international player’s award – the Golden Boot – in 2019.

He is the only player to win the Warriors’ player of the year accolade in three consecutive seasons (2017, 2018 and 2019).

He is able to join Auckland for the upcoming national provincial championship.
