Issac Luke understands that he is not guaranteed to play past this season with the New Zealand Warriors.

However, after earning a one-year contract extension last October, his son Adaquix and daughter Avarni have been vocal about their willingness to stay in Auckland.

“[Adaquix] wants to stay close to his mates over here and has a feeling that we are going to have to leave next year, or maybe leave, and he wants to stay,” Luke told NRL Media ahead of facing North Queensland on Saturday night.

“He wants to try and find a [rugby union] scholarship at a school and stay around his mates.

“My girl plays [league] as well… I don’t want to move her either, so I think I might just have to go back and play Fox Memorial [the Auckland club competition] after this year.

“We will see when it happens.”

The Warriors hooker has been left frustrated with niggling injury issues throughout the start of the season.

“[My] head is all good, the hammy is heaps better, I don’t know what the hell is going on with it… [I guess] old people get old,” Luke claimed.

“It sucked to be perfectly honest, because I want to be out there doing what I can to help the team.”


  1. Hey Zero tackle, i have been on this site for quite a few years , but am leaving your site the same has others have recently, due to the constant abuse from woodchook, i have reported him recently and could have done much more, in almost every article he mentions myself or my team, I don’t need this stress from this person who makes this site not fun anymore, all he does is make you mad, and i don’t need that, so goodbye and if he leaves i’ll come back.

  2. Sad to see you go penso, but completely understand.

    Woodduck is the definition of TR0LL, yet ZT has ignored it for way too long
