Deal ties Tupou to Roosters
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.
