Warriors skipper Roger Tuivasa-Sheck has offered his opinion on a potential switch to league for All Black half-back TJ Perenara.
Tuivasa-Sheck's words come as both the union and league communities buzz with anticipation after it was revealed yesterday that the Sydney Roosters have been in talks to sign the 66-test All Black.
Speaking from Australia, the former Rooster Tuivasa-Sheck heaped on the praise for the All Blacks' number 9, saying he has no doubt that Perenara could shine in the 13-man code.
"You can't fault class and TJ is class," Tuivasa-Sheck said.
"I think that no matter where he goes he'll do well. I know he is doing well over in Japan."
"Where ever he goes I support that he'll do well," he added.
The Warriors skipper also said the transition from union should be easy for a player of Perenara's calibre despite having no experience in league.
"It's definitely different but he's a tough player, he's built tough."
"Like anything if he learns the technique and how to wrestle and all that, he'll be good technically, I think he's a fit enough player to be in the game for long,"
Tuivasa-Sheck is set for a code-switch himself next season, signing with the Blues on a two-year contract.
The move ends a five-year run with the Warriors and a ten year career in the NRL.
The Warriors play the Dragons on Saturday in what will be Tuivasa-Sheck's 100th game for the club.
