Former Warrington Wolves halfback handed shock deal in surprising return

Ex-Warrington Wolves halfback Tyrone Roberts has been handed an NRL lifeline by the Brisbane Broncos

Roberts had been plying his trade for the Norths Devils in the Queensland Cup, but has now been snapped up on a train and trial contract with the Brisbane Broncos in an attempt to climb back up to the higher echelons of Australian rugby league.

Roberts will bring an enormous amount of experience from both sides of the hemisphere, having played a key role in both Super League and the NRL.

With almost 200 games experience under his belt following stints with the Knights, Titans and Super League side Warrington, halfback Roberts will bring some much needed stability to Brisbane’s halfback dilemma in recent seasons.

The 30-year-old played 33 games for Warrington in 2018, helping the Wolves reach both the Challenge Cup Final and the Super League Grand Final, but on both occasions the club fell short.

Roberts sought and was granted a release to return to Australia for the 2019 NRL season to be with his young family, signing a two-year deal with the Gold Coast Titans.

The halfback played just three games for the Titans in 2020 and was released at the end of that season.
