Former Warriors and Kiwis fullback Kevin Locke is close to making a dramatic return to the NRL, after turning his life around.
Having come through the ranks with the Warriors' junior sides, Locke left the club in 2014 after the arrival of high profile English import Sam Tomkins saw him surplus to requirements.
A move to English Super League sides Salford Red Devils and Wakefield Wildcats followed, before a string of off-field incidents saw Locke's time in the UK prematurely cut short.
"All I can say is sorry, and say sorry once and to try stop saying sorry, because sorry becomes another lie," Locke told 1 NEWS.
The troubled star has since started to turn his life around, finding God before making an attempt to crack back into the NRL with the Melbourne Storm, currently playing with their reserve grade side.
"I didn't believe in God and I used to sort of turn away when people used to talk about it," Locke said.
"But bro, go along to church and see what, just reach out to someone there.
"You know I've learnt a lot of life lessons and I've learnt that I've got to grow up some day and it's taken until now."
