Career in Sport


Eighteen year old Jordan Riki  has just had his talent in, and dedication to, the sport of Rugby League recognised in the form of a three year contract. Jordan who is the son of ex local woman, Janelle Riki-Waaka and whose grandparents  Sheryl and Reg Riki (ex-publicans at the Sheffield Hotel), still reside in the area,  now has a full time three year NRL contract with the Brisbane Broncos.  Jordan was on a three year development contract with the Broncos before attaining this recent contractual agreement. Jordan has definitely put in the hard yards and dedication to get to where he is today, and needless to say, Jordan’s family are not only incredibly proud, but also now Broncos supporters!

“Dad and I couldn’t be prouder of everything you’ve achieved, you deserve this moment, so enjoy it,” Janelle said of her son’s achievement. She added, “keep being you, keep going hard and keep making us all so proud.

“I’d like to say a massive thanks to all that have, and continue to, support your journey,” Janelle concluded.
