Tuimoala Lolohea has officially left the Warriors and informed Wests Tigers that he will sign with them.

The is reporting that the Warriors have finally released the 22-year-old Lolohea after the Warriors completed the signing of Zac Santo from the Raiders to be his replacement.

Lolohea had falling out of favour with the New Zealand club and had been seeking an immediate release for a number of weeks.

The Raiders and Cowboys had both shown interested in the versatile utility but it seems fait accompli that Lolohea will sign with the Wests Tigers. By joining the Tigers, Lolohea has a real shot at securing a starting role immediately.

With Mitchell Moses already gone, Lolohea can step straight into the halves for the Tigers and then make a move to fullback next season to replace James Tedesco.
