Super League and NRL clubs have been put on red alert with the news that an NRL star is up for grabs.
New Zealand Warriors halfback Chanel Harris-Tavita will not be awarded a new contract by the club and instead has started looking for other options.
“Harris-Tavita’s manager sent an email out to clubs last week,” The Daily Telegraph’s Brent Read revealed on Triple M.
“He has sort of been on the outer there a little bit in the past year or so.
“They haven’t offered him a new deal. He looks like he will play fullback in Round 1 with Reece Walsh out.
“He is a good versatile player so I’m sure he will find some interest elsewhere. He is too good to be on the scrap heap.
“He is a good enough player to get a start somewhere else. It is strange because he has done a pretty serviceable job there when he has got the chance.
“I’m sure someone will look to pick him up.”
Harris-Tavita made his debut in 2019 for the Warriors after impressing in the junior ranks, scoring two tries and three try assists in 13 games.
The Warriors will play the St George Illawarra Dragons on Saturday March 12 on the Sunshine Coast.
