    Titans' Pulu to return home to Warriors

    Gold Coast's Leivaha Pulu will repay the Titans for fulfilling his NRL dream before he joins the Warriors in 2018.

    - article from www.rugbyleague.co.nz

    Gold Coast's Leivaha Pulu says he'll give 100 per cent to the club which made his NRL dream come true before a likely move to the Warriors in 2018.

    The dynamic forward joined the Titans in 2016 from rugby league's NSW Cup and is moving back to New Zealand for family reasons.

    "I can't really say too much about the move but it's likely... ," said Pulu who is understood to have agreed a deal with the New Zealand club.

    Pulu has two small children and family back in Auckland but has not lived in New Zealand since moving to Gold Coast as a teenager.

    His younger brother George is currently incarcerated in a correctional facility on Auckland's north shore.

    "My goal now for 2017 is to just contribute for the Titans," Pulu said.

    The 27 year-old has performed strongly in the Gold Coast's most recent three-match winning streak.

    "I owe a lot to the club. They've given me my debut. They've taught me a lot," Pulu said.

    Highlights for Pulu this season include two tries against Cronulla, a try and 151 metres run against Newcastle and 122m in 56 minutes of game time against Melbourne on the weekend.

    During the representative round he made his Test debut for Tonga.
