Zane Tetevano receives visa clearance ahead of Leeds move

New Zealand international Zane Tetevano has received his visa clearance to travel to the UK and link up with his new club Leeds.

The 30-year-old has joined the Rhinos on a three-year deal from NRL side Penrith Panthers ahead of the 2021 campaign.

Tetevano, who has also represented the Cook Islands, made more than 120 NRL appearances for Newcastle Knights, Sydney Roosters and the Panthers.

Leeds director of rugby Kevin Sinfield said: “Zane has now received his visa, which is great news.

“He has been speaking to some of the squad to get to know the boys and is training hard over in Australia. With the current lockdown situation here, it is likely that he will not travel over until later next month.

“He is an experienced international with high personal standards for his training. To ask him to move over here with his young family and not be able to leave the house for a prolonged period would be unnecessary at this stage.

“The plan at present is for him to come over with Matt Prior when he returns to camp.”

Fiji international King Vuniyayawa is also set to join the Rhinos once he has received his visa.

  1. Just been watching some of the highlights from last season and there’s a ref on one of the games which spoiled one of the best grand finals I’ve seen in a long time I’ve never seen him have a good game yet he made a call against Jackson h in the final for an high shot on the little french man from saints which was never an high tackle and that cost Wigan the grand final Wigan should of gone on and won the game 4-2 had he not been on the line as he is the worst ref or lines man I’ve seen for a long time .
