New Zealand Warriors captain Roger Tuivasa-Sheck-Sheck will leave the club and rugby league at the end of 2021 to take up a contract in rugby union.

It was confirmed on Saturday that the Warriors would release him from the final year of his contract, allowing the fullback to pursue a career in the 15-man game in New Zealand, with the Blues the frontrunner to secure his signature.

Heading into the 2021 season ‘RTS’ has played 178 NRL games and 20 Tests for the Kiwis.
