Manu Vatuvei has spoken for the first time about his challenging past fortnight and his fight to win back respect from everyone associated with the Vodafone Warriors.

The 30-year-old try-scoring record holder returned to training this week after being on medical leave.

In an exclusive interview with Vodafone Warriors TV, he said he's still working his way back to where he needs to be and won't play this weekend. He spoke of his embarrassment following the events of the past fortnight, apologised for what had happened and had a special message for Vodafone Warriors members.
