The Warriors have confirmed twelve players who won’t be returning to the club in 2018.

The club held their annual awards ceremony last night and revealed a number of players who would not be playing for the New Zealand club in 2018.

It had been well documented that Kieran Foran (Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs), Ben Matulino (Wests Tigers), Charlie Gubb (Canberra Raiders) and Toafofoa Sipley (Manly Sea Eagles) are all leaving the club to take up new deals with rival NRL clubs next season.

These players follow the departures of Tuimoala Lolohea (Wests Tigers), Erin Clark (Canberra Raiders) and Manu Vatuvei (Salford Red Devils) who left the club mid-season.

It was also common knowledge that veteran forwards Ryan Hoffman and Jacob Lillyman would not be re-signed by the club.

This has now been confirmed though with Ofahiki Ogden, Matthew Allwood and Bodene Thompson also joining them on the list of departing players from the club.

Ogden is believed to have signed with the Bulldogs for 2018 but there has been no official confirmation from either club.
