AFB: My only motivation is for family reasons

One New Zealand Warriors CEO Cameron George has provided an update about prop Addin Fonua-Blake’s contract status.

It was confirmed yesterday that Fonua-Blake had requested a release on compassionate grounds from the last three years of his contract.

Following discussions overnight George said agreement had been reached for Fonua-Blake to remain with the One New Zealand Warriors for the 2024 season while assessing his personal circumstances for 2025 and beyond.

“My only motivation for this move is for family reasons,” said Fonua-Blake.

“But I really want all Warriors fans to know that I am fully committed to getting into the 2024 season.

“I can’t wait to get back to training with my teammates with the aim to go even further in the upcoming season.”
