Captain - Fullback
'RTS' is in his last season with the Vodafone Warriors before switching to rugby union next year. He announced in January that he would change codes after reaching agreement with the club to finish his contract a year early.
He heads into his sixth campaign with the club with a chance of achieving three major individual milestones before he leaves.
He needs six for games to bring up his 100th appearance for the club and is 13 short of becoming only the second player after Simon Mannering to captain the Vodafone Warriors in 100 NRL games; and he is 22 games away from reaching his 200-game career milestone.
Tuivasa-Sheck has been a shining light throughout his time with the club. While his first season in 2016 was blighted by an ACL injury he has missed only six games in the last four years.
He was named the club's player of the year in three consecutive seasons - 2017, 2018 and 2019 - as well as becoming the first Vodafone Warrior to take out the Dally M Medal as the NRL's player of the year.
He was again outstanding as both a player and leader during the club's challenging campaign during the Covid-19 affected season when he stood up week after week despite being away from his young family in Auckland.
Across his five seasons at Mount Smart Stadium, Tuivasa-Sheck has maintained exceptional statistics in the level of his involvement exemplified by his metres gained - an average of 175 a game in seven appearances in 2016, 181 in 23 in 2017, 178 in 23 in 2018, 206 in 23 in 2019 and 220 in 18 in 2020.
Coming back from knee surgery in 2017, RTS also had the added responsibility of the captaincy, handling the role with class throughout. Along the way he has also embraced fatherhood with his wife giving birth to their daughter Amara and son Nico.
