Having only turned 20 two weeks ago, Sydney homegrown talent Josh Curran has decided to take his talents to Auckland and play for the Warriors.

With just one game to date this season in the win over the Storm in April, Curran has the opportunity to take up a more permanent role in the Warriors back-row.

The rookie will come in to replace Solomone Kata, who was granted an early release from his contract yesterday.

Warriors general football manager Brian Smith highlighted the Warriors delight of signing the promising back-rower.

“We’ve been watching Josh closely and he’ll give us more depth among our back row options,” he told the club website.

“He’s an accomplished player who has excelled in every age group representing New South Wales at under-16, under-18 and under-20 level as well as playing for the New South Wales Residents against Queensland this year.”


  1. Unhappy like Latrell at the membership recession Le Coqs.
    Tuivasa Sheck happy to be back home as well as we can see.
    Left that dump and won a Dalley M.

  2. Didn’t your beloved Roosters knock off Tedesco from the Tigers and Keary from the 2014 Premiers and World Premiers Souths?

  3. Not enough paper bags full of money to get them all to stay?
    When you just keep buying more & more players, they can’t all even get a chance to play first grade.
    As it is, the Nuggets are trying to put together a 30 man squad of halves.

  4. So how long before his scandalous video surfaces… thats what happens when players leave the Roosters right?
