The Warriors have confirmed that Roger Tuivasa-Sheck will again captain their NRL side this season.
The 24-year-old fullback is off contract at the end of this season and there had been reports linking him with a switch to rugby union or another NRL club.
Tuivasa-Sheck, who was appointed Warriors captain last year, played under new signing Adam Blair in the New Zealand team at the recent World Cup.
However, Warriors chief executive Cameron George says coach Stephen Kearney has no plans to change leaders.
"Stephen and I have spoken about it a number of times over the off-season and we have no doubt that Roger is a very suitable and appropriate person to be our captain and lead the club forward," George said.
"Roger is a winner, he is a quality person and he has a very good rapport with people on and off the field.
"He is the type of person we are very comfortable having lead our club and someone we can continue to build around."
George said the Warriors accepted there would be speculation about Tuivasa- Sheck's future and the club was doing everything possible to retain him.
"We have had initial discussions with Roger and his management; he is a priority for us and at this stage we are just letting Roger focus on the off-season.
"His manager and I are in constant contact and hopefully at the appropriate time in the near future we can progress those discussions."
Tuivasa-Sheck's first season for the Warriors in 2016 ended in frustration after rupturing knee ligaments in round seven, but he bounced back last year to score 10 tries in 23 matches for the club.
