Roger Tuivasa-Sheck has played his last NRL game after the Warriors superstar opted to return home to New Zealand this week.

The 28-year-old will leave the Warriors' bubble in Queensland bound for New Zealand on Thursday, before the Trans-Tasman travel bubble is closed.

Already signed to play rugby union next year, it means last week's loss to Penrith was the 2018 Dally M Medal winner's 195th and final NRL game.
