Star player makes “bombshell” return to rugby league from rugby union

Roger Tuivasa-Sheck is one of the best players to watch on the planet.

Very few players have a killer step like him. Always a joy to watch with ball in hand, nearly a decade ago he was winning his first NRL Grand Final with the Sydney Roosters as we started his career with a bang on the wing elusive and quick.

However, an ambition to play fullback led him to New Zealand Warriors where he became a hero both to the club and to the country helping the Kiwis to the 2013 World Cup Final at England’s expense.

That said, now he’s a hero of the All Blacks having swapped codes and reaching the pinnacle of international rugby union by making his debut the ultra dominant All Blacks.

However, rumours have recently circulated that Tuivasa-Sheck could be headed back to rugby league. The initial suggestion was that that he would return to where he made his name, the Sydney Roosters who have slipped down the NRL pecking order over recent seasons after back-to-back titles in 2018 and 2019.

That said, RTS shut down those rumours telling fans his future was sealed until the end of 2023.

Shortly after this there were reports that New Zealand Warriors were interested with their Chairman saying that they would always be happy to have him back and now they do.

In what is being described as “a bombshell” move by the likes of World Wide of Sports, Stuff and the Newcastle Herald, he is set to return to the NRL with the Warriors.
