Deal ties Tupou to Roost­ers

Townsville Bulletin - - SPORT -

SYD­NEY Roost­ers have locked up for­mer NSW State of Ori­gin winger Daniel Tupou un­til the end of the 2021 NRL sea­son.

Tupou, who played four games for the Blues in 2014 and 2015, was off con­tract at the end of the sea­son but signed a four- year deal yes­ter­day.

“Ev­ery chance I get to rep­re­sent the Roost­ers is a spe­cial one,” Tupou said. “The coaches have taught me so much and I’m proud to be part of the team here.”

Roost­ers have al­ready con­firmed James Tedesco’s ar­rival at full­back, while Michael Gor­don is ex­pected to move to the wing and play on an­other year. Cur­rent Blues winger Blake Fer­gu­son is yet to be re- signed, while reg­u­lar cen­tre Shaun Kenny- Dowall was re­leased ear­lier this year af­ter a drug charge.

Tupou, 26, has scored 65 tries in 111 NRL matches for the Roost­ers since his 2012 de­but.
