Interchange Player of the Year Jazz Tevaga has agreed a new two-year deal with the New Zealand Warriors.

Warriors chief executive George Cameron told AAP the 23-year-old would re-sign for the club, despite turning down an earlier offer and attracting interest from at least three other clubs.

The deal caps off a big week for Tevaga, who was named Interchange Player of the Year at the Dally M awards.

The Warriors will now set their sights on re-signing Issac Luke.

The fullback’s current contract has expired but reiterated at last night’s Dally M awards that he wants to remain at the Warriors.

“We want to stay in New Zealand as a family, my wife and the kids,” Luke told

“My manager is doing everything he can to get a really good contract. In saying that, I am happy where I am and obviously I want to stay.”


  1. You have to wonder if RL writers have any knowledge of the game or just cut and paste. Issac Luke hasn’t played ”fullback” since he left Canterbury and joined Souths all those years ago.

    • Sometimes it’s just a bit of a brainsnap. That happens if the writer is occupied by other things. I doubt the writer actually thinks Issac Luke is a Fullback
