After more than 140 NRL appearances with Newcastle Knights (2011-15) and Gold Coast Titans (2016-17), Tyrone Roberts moved up to the Super League in 2018.
The half-back joined Warrington Wolves on their debut in the first round of the Super League season against defending champions St Helens.
Despite a slow start to the season for the Wire as they lost their first two games, they would eventually enjoy a strong campaign by finishing in the top four.
It was what they did in knockout rugby that really caught the eye.
Wolves traveled to Wembley for the Challenge Cup final with Roberts at the helm despite being stunned by outsiders Catalans Dragons in the capital.
However, a heroic win over favorites St Helens in the Super League semi-finals took Wolves to the Grand Final, but they fell short again losing 12-4 to Wigan Warriors.
It was his last game for the club as he returned to Gold Coast in 2019.
After two years there, he will join the Brisbane Broncos. He made two appearances for their first team, but his real success would come at the North Devils feeder side initially managed by Leeds Rhinos boss Rohan Smith.
Smith and Roberts worked well together to lead the Devils to the Premiership in 2021, ending a 20-year wait for the title.
Roberts lifted the trophy again in 2022 following Smith’s move to Headingley.
However, Roberts himself has left the club as he returns to the Gold Coast to play for Titans feeder club Burleigh Bears, according to ZeroTackle. This allows him to play in the NRL again if called up and for a team for which he has already made 59 appearances in the past.
The door remains open for the 31-year-old to feature in the NRL.
