Former Rooster and Bronco Sean O’Sullivan has signed a one-year deal with the New Zealand Warriors, the club confirmed.
The 22-year old has played nine NRL games after making his debut with the Tricolours in 2018 before joining Red Hill the following season.
He made just three first-grade appearances for the Broncos in 2020 during their wooden-spoon campaign.
Warriors head coach Nathan Brown was excited to add the half to his mix for 2021.
“It’s great to be able to bring in a player of Sean’s ability to boost our squad,” said new Brown told the club website.
“He’s been part of the great system at the Roosters and has broadened his experience spending the last two seasons with the Broncos. He’ll add real value for us and ensure there’s real competition for places.”
O’Sullivan becomes the 29th player for the Warriors for next season meaning they have one more roster spot to fill.
He is the son of Warriors recruitment and development manager Peter O’Sullivan
Yet another player not given a fair chance at the Roosters, or at Brisbane.
A top line Penrith junior, that the Roosters poached from Penrith. They did so by employing his father , to get him to sign on there.
In fairness, EastOfDivide, Sean would not have made the first grade squad.
He may of at the time? Who’s to say. The point was, the Roosters & Brisbane didn’t give him a fair go. Before letting him go.
True, and neither did Penrith. Worked out well for us though.
Who’s to say that Panthers 18? He was gone well before Penrith would have been able to give him that chance.
Doesn’t really matter. Penrith cops crap on this site for letting a player go . When the player would have given up football almost a decade ago, except Penrith gave him a chance to play. They also supported the same player through long absences from playing due to injury.
Where as the Roosters etc ,buy players to toss them aside any old time. Without criticism. I was just pointing out the double standards in journalistic reporting, yet again.
