Frank-Paul Nuuausala slams treatment by Wigan

Sydney Roosters prop Frank-Paul Nuuausala claims Wigan didn’t care about his family during his time at the Warriors.

The 31-year-old returned to the Roosters in February after being released by Wigan due to him being homesick.

But Nuuausala has slammed the way the Warriors went about his release.

He told Australia’s Sunday Telegraph: “They did things that I felt were not professional and right to be honest.

“They didn’t want to release me early and they were just trying to play hard ball.

“They can say what they want, but I know the truth and I’ve got the proof if they want to come out. I still had a contract, but they made it difficult and they didn’t really care about my family to be honest.

“Things at Wigan just weren’t working and I wanted to come back home to my family. I felt like I was wasting my time in England and I was just over it to be honest. I was going to retire, but my wife said I’ve still got a chance to play in the NRL.”

Nuuausala’s wife has also uploaded a photo of The Sunday Telegraph’s article on her Instagram profile.

New Zealand international Nuuausala admitted that he couldn’t believe the Roosters wanted him back at first.

He added: “I spoke to Robbo [Trent Robinson, coach) and I remember crying, because I had a feeling that I was going to come home.

“Everyone that knows me knows that the Roosters are my family. I spent 10 years at the Roosters, so I feel like the club is part of me. I will always bleed tricolours no matter what.”
