Wests Tigers Bodene Thompson is happy with his consistency having played every game in the NRL this season for the Tigers so far.

Kiwi back rower Bodene Thompson is joining the Warriors on a three-year contract for the 2015, 2016 and 2017 NRL seasons.

While revealing Thompson’s signing, Warriors general manager Dean Bell also confirmed second rower Jayson Bukuya had been granted a release on compassionate grounds to return to Sydney.

The Tauranga-born Thompson boasts a total of 85 NRL appearances for the Gold Coast Titans and Wests Tigers and is now in camp with the Kiwis for their 2014 Four Nations campaign. He was 18th man for their encounter with Toa Samoa in Whangarei last night.
