Former Kiwis international returns to Wests Tigers

The former Kiwis international Dene Halatau is returning to the Wests Tigers National Rugby League club after four years with the Canterbury Bulldogs.

Halatau will re-join the club he left in 2009 on a two-year deal.

Halatau, who played 128 games for the Tigers and was part of their 2005 premiership-winning team, spent seven years at the club.

The Tigers chief executive Grant Mayer says the 30-year-old's signing was more than just about football, believing his experience and leadership as a senior player will be invaluable for some of the club's younger players.
