    If it's a case of Hiku wanting to come home it maybe the first time in Warriors history we've paid unders for an overseas signing.

    I reeaally hope so. He's got the potential to be a good signing, but not at the expense of GETTING A FUCKING PROP

    I don't get this after signing Beale. Two similar players, plus the backs weren't our main problem. Our lack of go forward was our biggest problem

    More depth the better. Would be for a decent price, nice to have options in the backs. We did lose Manu and Allwood, and have 5 additional spots in the roster to full. After a full off season he could get back to what we all know he can do.

    I'm sure the Warriors understand they need forwards..

    Bring him in. He and Beale are infinitely better options than Kata and Maumalo. Now we have some nrl quality experienced backs we can look at the engine room.

    With the signing of Beale, Santo and possibly Hiku does this mean a player is possibly on the way out.

    Maybe Ken's off to the forwards finally now that we have PH and GB on the books

    I am sitting here paralysed with fear that Kearney will have a 2018 process that has Hiku playing 5/8. Please football gods, don't do it to us. We've suffered enough. I beg you

    In all seriousness though, would be a very handy signing, not only does it add depth to those outside backs but will also have players on notice and needing to perform to gain selection.

    Could potentially be the rocket up Katas bum to get him firing again and who knows, he may even need to add a pass into his game if he wants to hold his spot.

    Competition for spots = brilliant.

    Nothing better than having players worried about a bloke in ressies nipping at their heals, keeps them all on their toes and energy levels lift

    don't think so,

    Beale > Manu
    Santo > Tui
    Hiku > Allwood

    seems to add up

    Be very interesting to see what starting line up for backs looks like next year, roger and fuss would be the only certain starters.

    Cant believe we offered him a million dollars a few years ago. Hiku has turned to shit last couple years. Cracks me up that he stayed at Manly for a lot less money as his dad told him that the Warriors would ruin his career. He did that all by himself and came out poorer for it.

    Guessing he's played the homesick card and we have signed him for basement bargain rates. Be surprised if he makes first grade unless he has an amazing preseason. Guy is totally unfit and playing rubbish compared to what he was in 2013/14...

    All I am thrilled about is the thought of pre season training, top 8 is right out of my sights:(

    I haven't seen any of him in the SL, safe to say he is looking average in that Comp then?

    Not exactly, word out of there is he's been instrumental in helping them avoid relegation.

    He's been a bust these past two seasons for a couple of reasons though, early in 2016 he suffered a season ending knee injury he came back round 1 this year and had a solid game before JWH fractured his eye socket, things went down hill from there.

    He looked overweight and chopped and changed positions before being forced out of the Panthers halfway through the year.
