Roberts set for Warrington exit

Warrington’s marquee man Tyrone Roberts will leave to club at the end of the season.

The 27-year-old joined the Wolves on a three-year deal at the start of the year, however, his deal included an opt-out clause after the first season, which he has decided to activate. He’s expected to return to Gold Coast, who he left to take up his deal in Super League.

“I’ve been in regular contact with Tyrone as we have a really good working relationship,” head coach Steve Price said.

“It’s just unfortunate that his family is homesick. One thing I’m sure about with Tyrone is that he is fully committed to the Warrington Wolves for the rest of the year. I’m confident he’ll keep on improving and evolving as the season progresses. He has outlined to me personally that he’s determined to leave in a successful manner.”

Roberts added: “It’s been a tough decision, but my family and I have decided to take up the option to head home to Australia at the end of the season. Since moving here I’ve found it really tough to adapt and being so far away from family back home made it harder. My family and I have loved our time here in Warrington and we would like to thank the club and staff here for being so welcoming. I’d like to thank the boys as well; they’re a good bunch of lads and I’m proud to pull on a jersey each week with them. I am 100% committed to the club and, the boys and I are keen to bring a trophy home at the end of the season.”
