Roy Asotasi, a 217-game NRL veteran, has returned to the field and decided to join a new squad.

The 2004 premiership-winning prop played for the Canterbury Bulldogs and South Sydney Rabbitohs throughout a 12-season career beginning in 2002 before retiring at the end of the 2013 season.

He also played 24 games for the New Zealand Kiwis from 2004 to 2009 and was a previous captain of the national team before making one appearance for Samoa in 2013.

Souths Juniors club Coogee Dolphins has revealed that Asotasi will participate in the club’s A-grade tournament and work with a number of outstanding players looking to break through the juvenile divisions.

“Roy will be working with our elite players to help them break into junior representative and NRL pathways teams, and will also be playing A-grade for the mighty Coogee Dolphins,” according to a statement from the club.

This comes after he worked part-time for the Canterbury Bulldogs last season, tutoring the club’s younger players in the Academy programme.
