2023 Roster: Gains & Losses


Good chance we’ll land Spencer Leniu.

Will wait until he sobers up, might change his mind..?

Seriously though, we don't know what draw Webster has, would be a little surprised if 1 or 2 Panthers didn't join us over the next couple years. With Pene gone, we're down to 2 NRL props in the squad. Sounds like Kerr is one, Leniu would add a nice dimension that Pene was supposed to bring. Really young still with a big motor, would be a good pick up if possible.


First Grade
Talk we have signed a new junior Tanner Stowers-Smith.
Looks promising.
Google him for more info.
Right from the get-go I'm just calling him Tanner, rather than TSS. The rest of you will fall into line with the latter though, you watch!

One Warrior

Official release:

Double Dragon Wiliame signed​

Versatile centre-back rower Brayden Wiliame has signed a two-year deal with the One New Zealand Warriors until the end of the 2024 NRL season.
Currently playing for Perpignan in the elite French rugby union competition, 29-year-old Wiliame boasts an extensive cross-code resume with almost 50 NRL games adding to his 77 Super League appearances with the Catalan Dragons.

“We’re thrilled to secure Brayden and look forward to the experience he’ll bring to the squad as well as the added versatility he offers the coaching group,” said One New Zealand Warriors GM Recruitment, Pathways and Development Andrew McFadden.
Wiliame made his NRL debut in 2013 and has scored 16 tries for the Parramatta Eels, Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles and St George Illawarra Dragons with 35 tries during his two years with the Catalans Dragons.
The former Fiji Bati international was a try scorer for Les Catalans in their 20-14 victory over Warrington in the 2018 Challenge Cup final at Wembley.

Jazz Tevaga re-signs until the end of 2024:

Tevaga extends to 2024​

Experienced forward Jazz Tevaga has extended his One New Zealand Warriors NRL career to nine seasons after today signing a new one-year deal to the end of the 2024 season.
The 27-year-old’s recommitment follows a 2022 campaign which saw him become the 27th player to make 100 first-grade appearances for the club.

Heading into the return home from Covid exile, Tevaga shares the honour with established teammate Bunty Afoa of being the club’s newest 100-game players; only Shaun Johnson of the current squad has made more appearances for the One New Zealand Warriors.
“Jazz contributes so much to what our club stands for,” said One New Zealand Warriors GM recruitment, pathways and development Andrew McFadden.
“He brings so much energy, toughness and passion to the team as well as so much care and pride for a club which has been his home for so long.
“We’re thrilled he’ll be with us for another year as we head into an era of real change.”
After first wearing the club’s colours in the NYC under-20 team in 2014 and then in the New South Wales Cup, Tevaga went on to make his NRL debut against Melbourne in 2016.
“I’m so happy knowing we’re back home at last for the 2023 season after being in Australia for the last three years,” he said.
“I’m excited with what lies ahead with a new coach in Webby (Andrew Webster) and a lot of new players. And I can’t wait to be playing in front of our fans at last. That’s what I’ve missed the most.”
Across his 108-match career, Tevaga averages 84 metres and 34 tackles a game.

So Tevaga has been extended before he has played a game in 2023.
Someone has a higher opinion of him then me.
