Samoa star pens new deal with New Zealand Warriors

Samoa international Jazz Tevaga has signed a new two-year contract with New Zealand Warriors.

The 23-year-old hooker has made 49 appearances for the Warriors since making his NRL debut for the Warriors back in 2016.

Tevaga – who has earned four caps for Samoa – was named Interchange Player of the Year at the 2018 Dally M Awards.

Warriors coach Stephen Kearney commented: “We’re thrilled to have Jazz signed for two more seasons.

“He brings so much to our group with his energy on and off the field.

“He isn’t the biggest forward going around by a long way but that doesn’t bother him. What he offers is intensity and enthusiasm either starting or coming off the bench.

“He certainly gives us tremendous value and it’s wonderful having him around the club.”
