I reckon he’ll be lining up against us round one- just our luck...
Fuckn typical, now he gets the trial to analyze our weaknesses, probably on spreadsheets in a peer reviewed academic paper, then he can pick us apart and carve us up round 1.

Big game this one, be a good one to win because the Tits will win more than they lose in Cam's testimonial year, it'll be like the Cronk show at the Chooks again if the NRL can get it to go to script. We need this win for confidence in the grand final. #WarriorsTitsGF2021

Shaun Johnson testing the open market gets news in Sydney cause pretty much everything in league does. He did the same thing here each time he was off contract. The problem when he left was the club told him first.


The article is still pretty recent and its the off season so it's hard to test the reaction to it. The Sharks forum only has two comments, one saying he can't just wait for the club to offer him something and another saying it would be crap if they lost him.

That article only has the one comment.

Considering he hasn’t hit any great heights, and his injury concerns since he moved to the Shire, I can’t see any NRL clubs offering Shaun Johnson the big money he’s been getting since he left the Warriors. I wouldn’t be surprised if he ends up going to the English Super League after the upcoming season.

He has an interesting year coming up. He has to return from a pretty big injury and secure a contract. He's also getting towards the end of his careers, a point where some of the big stars ending up taking lower offers to continue playing.

Roosters trying to sign an All Black.



All Blacks star TJ Perenara is reportedly considering a shock code switch to the NRL.

1 News in New Zealand is reporting that Perenara is “seriously considering” the switch after the Sydney Roosters reached out to his agent Warren Alcock.
“We are talking to NZR and other parties that have approached us,” Alcock told 1 News.
Perenara, the All Blacks halfback and former Hurricanes co-captain, is plying his trade in the Japanese Top League with the Red Hurricanes, choosing to take up the short-term contract overseas late last year.
He is contracted to New Zealand Rugby until the end of this year, and said last year that his Japanese sabbatical “doesn’t mean it’s the end for me” in New Zealand.
TVNZ reporter Matt Manukia also reported “multiple sources” have confirmed the Roosters are deep in negotiations with the star.
It is reported that the Roosters want to play Perenara at hooker.
The club is in the middle of an injury crisis with star playmaker Luke Keary and former captain Jake Friend headlining the list of players unavailable.

Is he any good ??

K.hunt is on a train and trial contract with the Broncos.

Been a long time out of the game young Karmichael....something like thirty four now...Milford to likely be on the market next season at around 350K they recon on Fox...

Wonder if the Warriors will talk to Milford.

Yeah I rate him, always kinda played second string to Aaron Smith but he’d be a starter for most other countries-Canes have certainly missed him this season.
Might be a bit on the small side but he’s a good passer and runner and probably one of the best support runners around- he’s up there with the leading try scorers pretty much because of this. Yappy mouth on him might irk a few players. Warriors could certainly do worse

I agree with everything you say union wise, I don’t know why, but I think he’d make a great half. Way better half I think, he’s not even the 2nd or 3rd best passer from set play in nz. But he’s a hell of a support player who has a great offload. Maybe a 6? Perhaps even a 1?

He played a bit of 1st 5/8 last season so could likely be a 6 option, think their eggs are in the young Walker basket there though
