NRL 2021: NZ Warriors halfback Kodi Nikorima recommits to club for 2022 season

NZ Warriors halfback Kodi Nikorima has re-committed to the club by taking up the option for an additional year at the club, and re-signing until the end of 2022. 

The 27-year-old New Zealand international signed from the Brisbane Broncos midway through the 2019 season, and will stay put at the Kiwi NRL club for an extra 12 months. 

"I love being at this club and I feel I've improved my play in my time here," Nikorima says.

"I look forward to being a senior player and helping our team improve and challenge the top teams. Now my immediate future is settled I look forward to playing my best footy."

Nikorima has had a consistent season in 2021 with three try assists, 72 average running metres, four forced dropouts and two tries to leave coach Nathan Brown confident he has more to offer the team. 

"I have a lot of faith in Kodi and I'm glad his future is settled for next season," he says.

"Now we can concentrate on us winning games and being consistent. 

"Kodi's a popular and important member of our squad and I'm sure it will give the group a big lift knowing he has been secured for another season."

Nikorima made his NRL debut in 2015, has played 126 NRL matches, as well as making 15 test appearances for the Kiwis.
