Joining the Roosters at the tender age of 14, Wong scaled the ranks and became the first player to transition from the club’s academy to the NRL. His debut in first grade rugby came this year, and since then, he has marked his presence in 10 top-tier matches.
Securing Wong was seen as a critical action for the club, following the re-contracting of teammates Nat Butcher, Billy Smith, and Connor Watson. The officials are now actively working to extend agreements with other talents like Joey Manu, Terrell May, and Sitili Tupouniua.
Celebrating Wong’s talent, the Roosters awarded him the Harry Phipps Rising Star Award, along with the designation of the club’s NSW Cup player of the year.
Regarding his tenure, Wong said, “Ever since joining the Roosters as a youngster, I have loved it here. Wearing the Roosters jersey makes me immensely proud and I consider myself lucky to be coached by Trent and mentored by the senior players.”
Acknowledging that the journey of improvement is still a long one, he stated his eagerness to continue his hard work to become an even stronger player as well as a good human being.
Roosters‘ head coach, Trent Robinson, lauding Wong, noted his increasing confidence and growth as a player over the past few years. “Siua is a dedicated individual, be it at training or his studies. Knowing that we will continue to have him in our next-gen team progression is exciting.”
Apart from club-level commitments, Wong was seen playing for Fiji in last year’s Rugby League World Cup and made his first appearance for Mate Ma’a Tonga in their games against England.
Out of the rugby field, Wong is working towards achieving his Bachelor of Arts degree.
