It was reported almost four months ago that the Broncos were close to re-signing off-contract Kiwi stars Alex Glenn and Jordan Kahu. Since then, Glenn has indeed re-signed – along with a bevy of other high profile Broncos – but oddly, Kahu appears to have been forgotten. He hasn’t been forgotten by everyone however, with the Warriors reportedly considering a play for the goal-kicking winger.
According to News, the Warriors “are circling Kahu“, with Warriors coach Stephen Kearney said to be a big fan, after handing Kahu his Test debut for the Kiwis two years ago.
For his part, Kahu seems relatively nonplussed about his contract situation, saying that “that’s why I pay my manager, he can sort all that out”.
It had been largely assumed that Kahu would remain at Red Hill, however the longer he goes without signing, the more likely it is that someone else weighs in with a big offer.
Given their penchant for signing every available Kiwi Test star they can get their hands on, a Warriors bid certainly fits their M.O; but unless Kahu plans on gaining 30 kilos and playing in the front row, we’re not sure if he’s exactly what they need right now.
Kahu has played 72 first grade games for the Broncos, and 9 Tests for New Zealand.
He’s #16 on The Obstruction Rule’s Free Agent Top 100.
