Former Junior Warriors captain, David Bhana didn’t quite get the game time he felt he earnt after being signed to a first-grade contract at the Warriors.
That’s why at the end of this season, he and the club reached mutual agreeance to go their separate ways.
A big call for the player earmarked as the ‘next Simon Mannering’ averaging the most tackles per game in his final year in the junior ranks, to walk away from the club who gave him a shot at professional rugby league.
Newcastle head coach, Nathan Brown wasted no time in signing Bhana after realising that the Warriors were not going to make full use of his youthful services.
“They’ve been doing a lot of recruiting in the off season, they didn’t have a good 2015, so I’m excited about the rebuild” says Bhana.
