New Zealand Warriors skipper Roger Tuivasa-Sheck has confirmed he’s switching codes and will play rugby in 2022.
Tuivasa-Sheck will play one more season with the Warriros before making the switch. His aim is to secure a spot in the All Blacks side for the 2023 Rugby World Cup.
The 27-year-old has not confirmed which Super Rugby side he will join.
At this early stage Tuivasa-Sheck is expected to play fullback or wing in rugby, and will have 18 months to crack the All Blacks squad ahead of the 2023 Rugby World Cup.
As part of his deal, if Tuivasa-Sheck does return to rugby league in the future, the Warriors will have the first option at re-signing him.
