Ex-Warrington Wolves halfback Tyrone Roberts to make Grand Final appearance with links to Leeds Rhinos’ Rohan Smith

Former Warrington Wolves star Tyrone Roberts

Tyrone Roberts has played on the biggest stages in British rugby league.

Halfback Roberts joined Warrington Wolves at the end of 2017 ahead of the 2018 season, and the move would prove to yield plenty of reward as he got to play in both major finals although unfortunately for the halfback neither game saw him lift silverware.

Roberts’ Wolves were the overwhelming favourites at Wembley against Catalans who produced an upset to make history and lift the sport’s oldest trophy for the first time.

Then, this time as the underdogs, Warrington were undone by Wigan at Old Trafford in a 12-4 defeat to the Warriors at the Theatre of Dreams.

That was his last appearance for the Wolves before joining Gold Coast prior to a switch to Brisbane in 2022.

Roberts made his debut for the Broncos in Round One of the NRL against Sydney as Brisbane shocked the Roosters with a number of key players missing.

Roberts has only made one more NRL appearance since then playing the majority of his time in the Broncos’ feeder team Norths Devils who are now set for a Grand Final battle with Redcliffe Dolphins the precursor to the NRL’s newest club the Dolphins who will be led by Wayne Bennett and current St Helens boss Kristian Woolf.

Roberts has today been named at halfback for the Devils wearing the number seven jersey as the Devils look to claim the title against the Dolphins.

The Devils are the reigning Champions lifting the trophy last year with a 23-10 final win under no other than Leeds Rhinos coach Rohan Smith with Huddersfield Giants hooker Danny Levi at nine.

It was the Devils first title since 1998 and cemented Smith’s potential.

Smith started the Devils’ title defence this year working alongside Roberts as the season began leaving them in a good place to defend their crown before taking up an opportunity at Leeds where he now has them 80 minutes away from a title of their own with his Rhinos set to take on reigning Champions St Helens at Old Trafford in the Super League decider.
