Former Warrington Wolves halfback Tyrone Roberts’ chooses different club in shock return

It was reported last week that former Warrington Wolves halfback Tyrone Roberts had joined Wests Tigers.

That, however, is not the case with the 30-year-old instead on a train-and-trial contract with the Brisbane Broncos in a bid to carve out a new career in the NRL.

That’s according to 7News which has reported that Roberts is one of six aiming for a major contract at Red Hill.

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

The Tyrone Roberts on the books at the Wests Tigers is a youth product who is tipped to have a big future in the NRL.
