Roosters Snap Up Otahuhu Star
Auckland schoolboy 18-year-old fullback/winger Roger Tuivasa-Sheck has been snapped up by the Sydney Roosters. Tuivasa-Sheck has starred in both rugby codes at schoolboy level and recently represented New Zealand’s national schoolboy rugby union team against the Australian schoolboys. Roosters recruitment officer Peter O’Sullivan was pleased Tuivasa-Sheck, who has signed a two-year deal, shunned offers from rival NRL and Super Rugby sides to link with the Bondi-based club. “It’s very exciting for the NRL and rugby league that Roger has decided to pursue a career in our game, as he has a great passion for rugby league,” O’Sullivan said.
