Former Kiwis captain leaves South Sydney

2:56 pm on 2 July 2013

The former Kiwis captain and South Sydney veteran Roy Asotasi will leave the National Rugby League club at the end of the season to join English Super League club Warrington.

The 31-year-old front-rower has signed a two-year deal with the English club.

Asotasi, who has played 25 tests for New Zealand and Samoa, has played 206 first-grade games since making his NRL debut in 2002, 122 of them for South Sydney.

The South Sydney chief executive Shane Richardson says Asotasi kick-started the club's "revolution" when he joined them in 2007 and helped them develop to where they currently sit at the top of the NRL competition.
