Frank-Paul Nuuausala hits out at treatment during time at Wigan

Former Wigan prop Frank-Paul Nuuausala has hit out at the way he was treated by his former club – saying they made his time in England difficult.

Nuuausala secured a release from the Warriors at the start of this season to return to the NRL and join Sydney Roosters: but, speaking to Sydney’s Sunday Telegraph, he admitted he was unhappy with the way he was treated by the club.

“They did things that I felt were not professional and right to be honest,” he said.

“They didn’t want to release me early and they were just trying to play hard ball.

“They can say what they want, but I know the truth and I’ve got the proof if they want to come out. I still had a contract, but they made it difficult and they didn’t really care about my family to be honest.

“Things at Wigan just weren’t working and I wanted to come back home to my family. I felt like I was wasting my time in England and I was just over it to be honest. I was going to retire, but my wife said I’ve still got a chance to play in the NRL.”

Nuuausala recently made his debut for the Roosters in the NRL.
