Former Warrington Wolves halfback handed shock lifeline

Former Warrington Wolves halfback Tyrone Roberts has been handed a shock lifeline to kickstart his first grade career.

It was first thought a couple of weeks ago that the 30-year-old would be given a chance by the Brisbane Broncos.

Now, however, he has been handed a train-and-trial contract by Wests Tigers, according to the team lists shown on Fox Sports.

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

It would also mean that Roberts will be linking up with former Wigan Warriors favourite Jackson Hastings who has recently made the move to the Tigers.

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, but he has since been plying his trade in the Queensland Cup with the Norths Devils.
