Leuluai returning to Warriors

12:55 pm on 20 November 2011

The experienced Kiwi utility Thomas Leuluai will return to the New Zealand Warriors next year.

The 26-year-old will swap one Warriors club for another after his manager Peter Brown negotiated a three-year deal for Leuluai to return to the New Zealand Warriors when his existing contract with the Wigan Warriors ends, following the 2012 English Super League season.

The son of 1979-1986 Kiwi legend James, Leuluai passed his father's 29-Test tally when he played his 30th international in the Kiwis' Four Nations loss to England at Hull's KC Stadium last weekend.

After seven seasons in the Super League, Leuluai says he's ready to return home and was also driven to play in the NRL again.
