Bill Tupou
Immediate transfer

Bill Tupou has left the New Zealand Warriors with immediate effect and has signed for the Canberra Raiders.

The winger has played 62 games for the Warriors since making his debut in 2010, but will leave the club on a two and a half year deal with the Raiders, Fairfax media reports.

The 22-year-old signed a new deal with the Warriors for this season and 2014, plus an option for the 2015 campaign but the presence of Manu Vatuvei, Glen Fisiiahi and Ngani Laumape has seen him out of first grade since round 10.

Tupou, who scored 19 tries for the Warriors, will join Canberra this week and could potentially play against South Sydney on Friday night.
