Warrington have completed the signing of playmaker Tyrone Roberts from the Gold Coast Titans.

The 26-year-old has signed a three-year marquee deal at the Halliwell Jones Stadium and becomes the first signing under new head coach Steve Price.

Roberts brings vast NRL experience to the Wire having made a combined total of over 130 appearances during spells with Newcastle Knights and Gold Coast.

Speaking on his move to the Wolves, Roberts said: “I’m very excited to be joining the Warrington Wolves. My family and I can’t wait to get over there and start this new chapter in our lives. I’m excited to rip in and compete for some trophies and meet all the passionate fans.

“I’m also looking forward to working with Steve to help take my game to another level. He’s well respected in Australia as a coach so it’s a great opportunity for me to work alongside him.”

Warrington head coach, Steve Price, added: “Tyrone Roberts is a player who I’ve watched closely over the past few years in the NRL. He is a natural football player who loves playing footy in all different conditions. Tyrone has a great understanding of the game.

“He is a solid defensive player with a very sound kicking game; as well as having had an 82% goal-kicking success rate. A proud family man, with wife Brittany and two young daughters. Tyrone will be a great asset to Warrington Wolves.”
