South Sydney forward Roy Asotasi will leave the NRL at the end of the season and joining the Warrington Wolves in Super League on a two year deal. Asotasi had been linked to a move to the Bradford Bulls earlier this season.
The Wolves have been on the look out for a replacement for Adrian Morley who will is leaving the club to join the Salford Reds in 2014.
Asotasi was considered one of the most promising forwards in the game before his big money move from the Canterbury Bulldogs to the South Sydney Rabbitohs in 2007. Asotasi’s form with the Rabbitohs over the years has been disappointing at best. While he has played some decent football so far this year he was always going to find it difficult to convince an NRL club to invest in him after his time at the Rabbitohs.
How Asotasi performs in Super League, as always, will depend on what type of attitude he takes over to England. He could be a very good signing, but there was once a time when you could have said the same thing about his move to the Rabbitohs as well.
