Despite only arriving at the resurgent Warrington Wolves last winter, Australian half back Tyrone Roberts has confirmed that he is to depart the club at the end of the season.
Citing homesickness as the key reason for his departure from the club, 27-year-old Roberts admitted that his family have been struggling to settle as well as himself and, having signed a three year deal with the Wire ahead of the 2018 campaign, he has opted to exercise an option to leave the club at the end of the season. At the time of writing, it is unknown where he will continue his career but it has been suggested a return to former club Gold Coast Titans could be on the cards.
Speaking about his decision to leave the club, Roberts said that “it’s been a tough decision, but my family and I have decided to take up the option to head home to Australia at the end of the season,” continuing that “since moving here I’ve found it really tough to adapt and being so far away from family back home made it harder. My family and I have loved our time here in Warrington and we would like to thank the club and staff here for being so welcoming.”
Steve Price spoke highly of the Australian number 7 and expressed that the club will be well served by Roberts during his time remaining at the club. “One thing I’m sure about with Tyrone is that he is fully committed to the Warrington Wolves for the rest of the year. I’m confident he’ll keep on improving and evolving as the season progresses. He has outlined to me personally that he’s determined to leave in a successful manner,” he said.
