Seymour says he wants to rebuild his life and career with Warriors

Troubled playmaker Brett Seymour has vowed to rebuild his life and National Rugby League career in Auckland after signing with the Warriors as Stacey Jones' successor.

The Warriors have taken a gamble on Seymour, who was sacked by Cronulla in July after several alcohol-related off-field incidents.

A recent NRL policy development stipulated that clubs which took on players with a history of bad behaviour would be held accountable if there were further incidents which brought the game into disrepute.

Seymour, Warriors chief executive Wayne Scurrah and the club's executive director of football John Hart met with NRL chief executive David Gallop on Friday before formalising the contract.

Seymour says he realises he's on his last chance at his third club and can't afford to slip up.

The Warriors badly need a halfback to take over next season, with Jones last week announcing this would be his last year in the game.

Seymour has a one-year deal with an option to extend to another year.
