Karawalevu joins Sydney Roosters

Kaiviti Silktails outside back Vuate Karawalevu has signed a contract with the Sydney Roosters which takes him one step closer to a NRL career.

The Silktails’ ‘Rising Star’ winner for 2021 season returns to Sydney this weekend to begin two weeks quarantine before he joins the Roosters NRL squad in November under three-time premiership winning coach Trent Robinson.

The 20-year-old winger-centre played seven games for the Silktails scoring three tries and five for the Roosters Jersey Flegg Cup side, totalling nine tries this year.

Next season the Roosters expect Karawalevu to primarily play the Jersey Flegg Cup and The Knock-On Effect NSW Cup with the North Sydney Bears.

The Roosters see him as a winger but realise that he’s still raw, having played less than a combined 20 games of Rugby League with the Silktails in Ron Massey Cup and various trial games earlier this year, and the Roosters in the Jersey Flegg Cup.
