Former Vodafone Warriors captain Roger Tuivasa-Sheck was back in rugby league territory today reunited with familiar faces at Mount Smart Stadium.
The 29-year-old and his son Nico were sideline watching the Vodafone Warriors’ last field session ahead of their Michael Moore Trophy clash against Melbourne tomorrow night.
On the eve of departing to South Africa with the All Blacks, Tuivasa-Sheck gathered on the field with players and staff plus club ambassadors Awen Guttenbeil and Monty Betham for a special presentation of his Vodafone Warriors 100-game ring.
He joined the club’s list of 100-game players when he led the Vodafone Warriors to a 20-14 round six win over St George Illawarra last April.
Tuivasa-Sheck played another 11 matches before being released early to return to New Zealand to begin his rugby union career.
He finished his rugby league stint with 111 matches for the Vodafone Warriors and a total on 195 NRL appearances in all.
