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.

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.

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...

Blake Green signs three year deal with New Zealand Warriors - NEWS.com.au

THE next step in the Mitchell Pearce merry-go-round has been made official, with veteran Manly five-eighth Blake Green officially signing for the Warriors for three years.

The move means Manly now have the space in their roster to accommodate Pearce, who was on Monday released from his contract with the Roosters. Pearce had been unhappy with the Roosters’ signing of Cooper Cronk from Melbourne for next season, with the club telling the premiership-winning halfback they wanted him to learn under Cronk.

Green played for Manly in 2017, making 24 NRL appearances but was released on Monday within minutes of Pearce’s announcement.

He previously played for Melbourne for two seasons, following stints at Parramatta, Cronulla, the Bulldogs and for Wigan in the UK Super League. The Warriors were glad to pounce on Green’s availability.

“He wasn’t off-contract but became available through...

Revealed: Two new suitors enter race to buy Warriors - New Zealand Herald

Auckland Rugby League is still in the mix as a possible Warriors owner – but two other parties, including one with NFL connections, are also in the frame.

The ARL had the inside running a month ago, and had signed a sale and purchase agreement, which was set to go unconditional at the end of the due diligence process.

Mike Hosking talks about the Warriors fan sale.

But the ARL, which has a nest egg of funds through the Carlaw Park Heritage Trust, pulled out of their exclusivity deal when negotiations broke down with Eric Watson's representatives in the middle of November.

However, the Herald understands that the ARL remain a potential buyer, and they are monitoring the situation closely.

Canberra Raiders sign former New Zealand Warriors hooker Siliva Havili as replacement for injured Josh Hodgson - Newshub

Canberra have signed Tongan international Siliva Havili in an effort to ease their hooking crisis following Josh Hodgson's serious knee injury.

Havili was signed on a year-deal for the 2018 NRL season after coach Ricky Stuart's rake stocks were decimated in recent weeks.

The former Warriors and St George Illawarra player joins Craig Garvey as the Raiders' No.9 options for next year.

Hodgson is expected to miss nine months after tearing his anterior cruciate ligament while playing for England during the World Cup.

The club's stocks were further sapped after Adam Clydesdale retired while Kurt Baptiste is reportedly on the verge of leaving the club.              

Havili, who has played 24 NRL matches since debuting for the Warriors in 2013, now has the chance to nail down a spot in Stuart's 17 either at No.9 or off the bench.

"Siliva had a wonderful World Cup tournament for Tonga and he...

While the government continues to struggle with the issue, it would be fair to say that Glasgow Warriors have been rather more efficient in the business of getting out of Europe. Two games played, two games lost, not a single point to their name: how David Davis and his negotiating team must envy such a swift and clinical approach.

And if they lose to Montpellier at Scotstoun tonight then the process — Glexit? — will be complete. Pool 3 of the Champions Cup looked daunting enough when it was drawn, and it has been a harrowing experience for the Warriors so far. The October tranche of games saw them lose away to Exeter Chiefs and at home to Leinster. To have any chance of...
