Potential future Kiwis international Roger Tuivasa-Sheck has re-signed with the Sydney Roosters until the end of the 2016 NRL season.

The 19-year-old former New Zealand secondary schools rugby representative made six appearances in his maiden first grade season this year and is seen as the eventual successor to current fullback Anthony Minichiello.

He was promoted from the under-20s competition by then head coach Brian Smith and was still named in the Toyota Cup team of the year for 2012.

Tuivasa-Sheck, who represented the Junior Kiwis in October's trans-Tasman test curtain raiser in Townsville, was delighted to secure his long-term future at Bondi Junction.

"I'm really enjoying being a part of the Roosters. The club has treated me so well ever since I got here. I'm learning so much and I wanted to stay a Rooster and build a career here," he said.

Roosters chief operating officer (football) Brian Canavan described Tuivasa-Sheck as an "exciting talent and wonderful asset both on and off the field".

"He has shown some true leadership qualities for someone so young and has applied himself diligently across all aspects of professional football."
