Keeping RTS at Warriors a collective effort: Iro
Author Joel Gould Timestamp Tue 13 Feb 2018, 06:00 AM

Tuivasa-Sheck addresses future rumours
Whether the quest to keep Roger Tuivasa-Sheck in Warriors colours beyond 2018 succeeds will ultimately be a collective effort, insists the club's assistant coach Tony Iro.

With the off-contract star being courted by rugby union and other NRL clubs, the talk about the future of the man known as "RTS" will continue until he puts pen to paper.

RTS shrugs off contract speculation
Kiwis to open up coach role to all candidates
"Roger is a marquee guy who we want to stick around with the club because he is the captain, a good leader and he is only going to grow in that role because he is still young," Iro told NRL.com.


"There is also an understanding that individuals will have reasons to do what they want to.

"As a club we have to be doing the best we can, firstly as a team and building a culture where players like Roger want to stay.

"If that is successful, then the rest looks after itself. I don't think we are going into the season just thinking about how we can make Roger stay. That is up to the whole organisation in making it a place and environment where people don't want to leave."

The speculation surrounding a possible Tuivasa-Sheck move to rugby's Auckland Blues was associated with the allure of a gig with the All Blacks and a Rugby World Cup berth in 2019.

The All Blacks are a powerful and ever-present force in New Zealand life and culture but Iro doesn't lay awake at night worrying about losing players to the rugby union powerhouse.

"To be perfectly honest, I don't really think about it," Iro said.

"Yeah, I imagine the All Blacks are an attraction but you have got to be a pretty special athlete to first of all be presented with the opportunity, and then make the most of it.

"The games aren't as close as what people think. I know the best athletes can transition but until you make the jump, and it is usually a big jump, you are going into the unknown and there will always be that element of risk.


"Is it an issue? I don't call it an issue because the number of players going across has been limited. Sonny Bill [Williams] is obviously one who has made a strong transition into both but he was a pretty special athlete and there aren't too many built like him."

Former Kwi international Gary Freeman saw signs last year that Tuivasa-Sheck was ready to return to his best after a knee injury ruined his 2016 season.

"It takes a full year to get back to your best from a full knee reconstruction, but in the last five or six games of last year, and for the Kiwis, I saw signs in Roger of what he is going to be like this year, Freeman said.

"The way he was running the football back suggested he was 10 or 15 per cent off his best, but after a full pre-season under his belt he will be primed for round one. I think he is going to have a cracker of a season."

Iro agreed with Freeman's assessment, suggesting Tuivasa-Sheck's battles were not restricted to the physical elements.

"When you suffer from an ACL there is a timeframe where not just the body, but also the mind has got to heal as well," Iro said.

"Roger is training great at the moment and he looks and sounds really driven, which is him anyway, but I think he is looking to really do something after what has been a pretty disappointing two seasons for him, and that is rubbing off on the group.


"I think that some of the bodies we have put around him like Blake Green, Adam Blair and Tohu Harris are just as driven.

"They have come from successful environments and their impact on the group has been really good.

"That will take some pressure off Roger too because he has some real genuine voices there who are talking the same language, and as a young captain that will help him immensely."

Will be looking for an out by years end if they tank again.
And she's turning cold, at fifteen years old,
Taken too much slow, minds gone out to sea on the P&O,
Don't know what to do, rotten shade of blue,
Another case of "stupid is as stupid does..."

RTS thanks the Tigers for their interest and the extra couple of hundred g's he managed to leverage off the back of it I suspect.

This just makes me hate Tedesco even more.....


ROGER Tuivasa-Sheck admits he almost left the Warriors for a desire to win, but ultimately stayed because he realised the “bigger picture”.

The skipper signed a new contract last week, ending months of speculation he would leave the club or rugby league altogether.

He was being pursued by the Auckland Blues and could have been in the frame for next year’s Rugby World Cup with the All Blacks.

A number of rival NRL clubs were also interested in luring him back across the Tasman.
He came so close to jumping ship to rugby that he began trying to figure out his chances of making the All Blacks team.

“It was a genuine interest,” Tuivasa-Sheck told NRL.com.

“I was sitting down with my manager and going through a process of what my steps of going to rugby.

“I was counting how many players in front of me to hopefully make that World Cup squad. I had all those talks because there was a real genuine interest.”

And the biggest factor pushing RTS out the door was his want to win.

The Warriors haven’t played NRL finals since 2011 and have become the battler of the competition.

The arrival of Tuivasa-Sheck and Issac Luke have so far failed to arrest the slide, although both players have battled with injury.

And their poor performances of late almost cost them their skipper.

“I was getting frustrated,” RTS admitted.

“I was starting to look elsewhere because I wanted to win. I wanted to compete in the big stages.

“We lost a few games and we lost badly.

“You go home angry and you take it out on everyone else. I don’t think there was a time where I really regretted coming to Auckland apart from the footy.”

Ultimately, Tuivasa-Sheck realised he had to stick it out with the Warriors and try to help the club climb back up the NRL ladder.

“I had to get over myself and think about the bigger picture,” he said.

“I had to think about the challenge and opportunity here playing for the Warriors.

“I agreed to stay on and play. But definitely trying my best to get into the All Blacks side and going along to the World Cup next year would have been amazing.

“But the bigger picture of the challenge and opportunity with the Warriors is what drawn me.”
