Try-scoring winger David Fusitu’a has re-signed with the Warriors on a lengthy deal.

Fusitu’a was already contracted until the end of 2019 but his new deal will see him stay with the New Zealand club until at least 2023.

“Retaining David was a priority for us and we’re thrilled to see him staying here long-term,” said Warriors coach Stephen Kearney said on the club website.


“There’s no question he has made tremendous progress, especially over the last two seasons. He provides wonderful value for us in all respects.

“He’s a player the club has put a lot of work into to develop into a high-quality footballer and he is repaying the faith we have always had in him.”

Fusitu’a is currently sitting fourth on the top try-scorers list for 2018 with 15 tries from 18 matches and said he is very excited to re-sign with the club.

“I’m thankful to the club for having faith in me,” Fusitu’a said.

“I grew up always wanting to be a part of the Vodafone Warriors and I’m committed to seeing this club succeed and doing something special here. This is where I want to be.”
