Vodafone Warriors captain Roger Tuivasa-Sheck is eagerly looking forward to being reunited with his teammates for their flight to Tamworth tomorrow ahead of the scheduled resumption of the NRL season on May 28.
The Vodafone Warriors arrived home on March 24, heading straight into self-isolation and then full-scale lockdown for the Covid-19 pandemic following the suspension of the 2020 season after just two rounds.
Tuivasa-Sheck was spending as much time as possible with his family today before travelling to Tamworth, Australia’s home of country and western music, in north west New South Wales tomorrow.
“We’re excited knowing we have the all clear to fly tomorrow and looking forward to getting back together as a group for the first time in six weeks,” he said.
“It’s going to be a real challenge for us all being away from our families but we’re committed to getting back on the field to represent our club and our fans as well as everyone who loves sport.
“We’re thankful for all the work Cameron and the NRL have done to make it possible for us to get on with starting the season again.”
The full Vodafone Warriors travelling party will immediately head into quarantine when they arrive in Tamworth tomorrow afternoon.
