WARRIORS youngster Tuimoala Lolohea remains adamant he won’t be leaving the club and will stay and fight for his place in the starting side in 2017.

The utility back fell out of favour late last season but is looking to prove the doubters wrong and rediscover the form of his early career at the club.

“I’ll definitely for sure be at the warriors next year,” Lolohea told

“I know there’s been a lot of talk about me in the media but I’m looking forward to staying here and learning off some of the people at the club.

“I just want to let my football do the talking when the chance comes around and just prove people wrong.”

The 21-year-old has played 48 games for the Warriors since debuting in 2014, scoring 16 tries and 18 goals and represented Tonga and New Zealand in one Test a piece in 2015.

However after a breakout season in 2015 where he scored 11 tries Lolohea managed only five tries for the Warriors last season as he struggled to maintain a regular starting position.
