Apisai Koroisau shocked by Blake Green's departure from Manly Sea Eagles - The Sydney Morning Herald

Fijian hooker Apisai Koroisau admits he was blindsided by Blake Green's abrupt exit from the Manly Sea Eagles on Monday, which preceded him signing a deal with the New Zealand Warriors.

Manly announced Green was leaving on the same day Mitchell Pearce was granted a release by the Roosters, and Koroisau found out the news while in camp with Fiji in Brisbane preparing for Friday's semi-final against Australia.

Owning the New Zealand Warriors is still an interesting prospect for a number of parties.

The battle to buy the New Zealand Warriors is back on.

A number of interested parties are once again talking to the Warriors about buying the Auckland-based club, now the deal with Auckland Rugby League has fallen through.

The NRL club agreed to go into an exclusivity arrangement with Auckland Rugby League, which meant discussions with everyone else who'd shown interest in buying the franchise were terminated.

The Warriors have been a state of disarray on and off the field but are still an attractive proposition.

The Auckland Rugby League had high hopes to buy a majority stake in the Warriors but they have ended abruptly.

The Auckland Rugby League's negotiations to buy the New Zealand Warriors have broken down.

The ARL had put in a bid for a majority share of the Warriors to businessman Eric Watson a couple of months ago and it was thought agreement on an asking price had been reached.

But ARL chairman Cameron McGregor said on Tuesday the deal was off.

Another bid for the Auckland-based NRL club has fallen by the wayside.

Another bid for the Auckland-based NRL club has fallen by the wayside.

"I can confirm the contract is at an end. Quite simply we couldn't agree on terms with the Warriors," McGregor told Radio Sport.

Ex-New Zealand Warriors prop Charlie Gubb sets sights on Canberra Raiders 17 - The Canberra Times

A tough encounter against the Canberra Raiders sowed the seed for Charlie Gubb to join the Green Machine.

Now the 27-year-old former New Zealand Warrior wants to establish himself in Ricky Stuart's 17.

Gubb played 40 NRL games for the Warriors across five seasons, but the rugby union junior was looking for a fresh start.

Now his sights are set on being in the Canberra side for their round one clash against the Gold Coast Titans on the Gold Coast in four months' time.

With Dave Taylor and Clay Priest having left and the retirement of Jeff Lima, the door's open for Gubb to establish himself in the NRL.

"I want to focus on having a good year myself and I just want to crack into Ricky's 17, that's my goal - to be playing every week. I'll just do whatever job I need to do for...

Finn Russell to leave Glasgow Warriors at the end of the season - BBC - BBC Sport

Finn Russell has scored four tries in his 31 appearances for Scotland

Scotland fly-half Finn Russell will leave Glasgow Warriors at the end of the season in order to take up a "once in a lifetime opportunity".

The 25-year-old from Stirling has been with the Warriors since 2012.

"I've always wanted to experience as much as I can during what is a short rugby career," said Russell.

"It was a difficult decision to leave Glasgow, but I have the opportunity to take myself out of my comfort zone and experience a new culture and rugby."

Russell, who was first selected by Scotland for the 2014 summer tour of North America, earned his 31st cap in Saturday's narrow loss to New Zealand at Murrayfield.

His impressive performance in the 24-19 win over Australia in June helped earn Russell - who was part of the Glasgow side that lifted the 2014015 Pro12 - a call up to the British and...

Rugby League: Who could replace David Kidwell as Kiwis coach? - New Zealand Herald

With David Kidwell off-contract and unlikely to be reappointed as Kiwis coach following the failed World Cup campaign NZME looks at the alternative options.

At present only coaches residing in New Zealand can be appointed as coach of the Kiwis.

That rule has been in place since 2002 when it was established as a softer way to sack Sydney-based Gary Freeman.

The rule, which isn't even in the sport's constitution, was a handy way for the NZRL to move on Brian McClennan in 2007 when he took a fulltime job at Leeds.

NZRL boss Alex Hayton told Radio Sport Breakfast that the board will have another look at the controversial rule and it could be removed before the appointment of the next coach.

Finding local coaches that are up to the task will not be an easy job as the list of candidates below highlights.

It would seem more appropriate to look overseas for the next Kiwis...
