Kodi Nikorima has been released by the Brisbane Broncos to join New Zealand Warriors on a three and a half year deal.
The New Zealand Warriors have confirmed the signing on their website this morning.
The twenty-five year-old was replaced by teenager Tom Dearden for last night’s match against the South Sydney Rabbitohs at ANZ Stadium.
Anthony Seibold’s men fell to their sixth loss of the season in going down 38-6 to the table topping Bunnies.
Nikorima spent five seasons at Red Hill, running out for the Broncos eighty-six times. He’s represented New Zealand on thirteen occasions.
New Zealand Warriors have been looking for a replacement for Shaun Johnson after his move to the Cronulla Sharks during the summer break.
It’s expected Nikorima will see his new team in action this Sunday at Mount Smart Stadium when the Warriors take on Newcastle Knights.
