Warriors tie down rookie forward

New Zealand Warriors have secured the services of rookie prop Jamayne Taunoa-Brown for the next two years, after he agreed to a new contract.

The 23-year-old was only signed to a professional contract at the start of this season but has already made quite the impact, playing every NRL game so far this season and becoming a key part of the Warriors’ forward pack.

He scored his first try in his side’s 18-0 win over St George Illawarra Dragons in the Round 3 return fixture and averages 109 metres and 28 tackles a game.

“I’m trying to make the most of my time in first grade and play as many games as I can,” he told the Warriors’ official club website. “I’m enjoying playing footy at this level and with the group of players we have.

The pace of the game has been quite quick, especially with the new rule changes, but as I’ve got a few games under my belt I feel like I’m getting used to it.”

Warriors recruitment manager Peter O’Sullivan added: “Jamayne has the potential to keep growing as a player and with more confidence and time will develop his attacking game to showcase his full skill level.”
