The Warriors are on the verge of signing Brisbane’s Kodi Nikorima on a massive three and a half year deal, according to Fox Sports.
It is understood that the 25-year old would join New Zealand immediately and his new contract will be worth double what he’s making at the Broncos, which stands around $250,000.
Nikorima was ruled out of Thursday’s clash with the Rabbitohs by coach Anthony Seibold on Tuesday morning due to a calf issue, meaning he may have played his last game for the Broncos.
“Kodi did a good job to prove himself fit for the match last weekend on a six-day turnaround and played well against the Sharks,” Seibold told Broncos.com.au.
“He also has some decisions to ponder around his future, decisions that are not easy to sift through, and may affect his family.
“So considering the tight turnaround between matches, we think it is best he does not play against the Rabbitohs on Thursday.
“It will give Kodi the time and space to think through his decision.”
Tom Dearden is set to make his Broncos debut in Nikorima’s absence.
