It was not the smoothest road into the rugby league world for Daniel Tupou, but at age 21, he is finally making the best of his talent, talent that the Sydney Roosters can see – with the club confirming that that the talented back has re-signed with the club until the end of the 2015 NRL season.
Tupou’s extension is one that he is happy about, as he enjoys the club and everything about it.
â€œIâ€™m really enjoying being a part of the Roosters. Iâ€™m learning so much and I wanted to stay a Rooster and build a career here.
â€œI still have lots of room to improve and I hope to continue to learn and hopefully secure my opportunity to play some good football for the club.â€
Tupou is not the only happy camper, with the club themselves excited to have retained the services of Tupou for the long-term, with the club confident he will become a staple of the side for years to come.
â€œDaniel is an exciting young talent and has been a wonderful asset to the club both on and off the field,” said Roosters Chief Operating Officer, Brian Canavan.
“Tall, strong and with great footwork, Daniel has the ability to grab some AFL type marks and become a real crowd favourite. He has applied himself diligently across all aspects of professional football and we look forward to him continuing to be a key contributor in the years to come.â€
