He becomes the fourth player to have signed with the New Zealand Warriors for the 2013 season, as 23-year old Titans utility Dominique Peyroux signs a 2-year deal with the Warriors.
Peyroux, who can play in the centres, on the wing or at fullback, is excited at the prospect and opportunity of returning to Auckland to further his NRL career, having played 16 NRL games to date for the Gold Coast Titans.
â€œItâ€™s great to be coming back to Auckland. I left when I was 15, but New Zealand will always be my home and I canâ€™t wait for this,â€ he said.
â€œI will be doing all I can to compete for a spot and get as m
any first-grade games as I can.
â€œMatt (Elliott) has given me the chance and Iâ€™ll be giving it a real go.â€
With Peyroux playing well in his 16 NRL games for the Titans, it was that good form that saw new Warriors coach Matthew Elliott keep an eye on him for some time, before signing him.
â€œIâ€™ve been keeping track of him and really like what he can bring to the Vodafone Warriors,â€ he said.
â€œWeâ€™ve been working to find a player to build our depth in the outside backs to create the kind of competition we need for places. Iâ€™m confident Dominique will do a great job for us.â€
Peyroux is perhaps the most exotic player in the NRL, boasting New Zealand, French, Cook Island, Samoan and Solomon Islands descent.
