Off-contract Brisbane utility Kodi Nikorima could wait until after the State of Origin period before making a call on his NRL future.

But the versatile 22-year-old appears to be delaying the inevitable, with the Broncos unable to match neither the money nor playing opportunities available in the reported offer on the table from Melbourne.

The Storm are attempting to entice Nikorima with the chance to become a starter in the halves – something Brisbane cannot do with playmakers Ben Hunt and Anthony Milford well and truly entrenched in their positions.

Joining a Melbourne spine that includes Cameron Smith, Cooper Cronk and Billy Slater in 2017 is a tantalising prospect, but it’s a decision he isn’t keen to rush into.
