New Zealand full-back Roger Tuivasa-Sheck has won the 2019 Golden Boot, with Great Britain second-rower John Bateman missing out. Tuivasa-Sheck also edged out Tonga prop Siosiua Taukeiaho and Kiwis team-mate Jared Waerea-Hargreaves for the award, given by governing body International Rugby League to its player of the year.

Bateman was the only Great Britain player up for the men's prize.

Australia's Jessica Sergis won the women's Golden Boot.

Warriors CEO Cameron George has outlined the club's vision to "make every Kiwi proud" and declared that he won't be waiting for another end-of-season review to fix any problems preventing the fulfilment of that goal.

George, who recently visited the Brooklyn Nets with new Warriors owner Mark Robinson, said he had been "unshackled" to pursue the club's lofty ambition and told a meeting of players and staff: "Let's prove people wrong".
