Former Manly and Penrith Panthers utility Peta Hiku is reportedly set to join the New Zealand Warriors, cutting short his time in the English Super League with the Warrington Wolves after only joining mid-year.  

It is understood the Kiwi international has asked for a release from his current contract at Warrington on compassionate grounds, after the Warriors showed strong interest in re-signing the former Warriors NYC player. 

Hiku looks set to join fellow backline utility Gerard Beale who signed a multi-year deal with the Warriors on Friday, as Stephen Kearney looks to rebuild the New Zealand-based side after a lacklustre few seasons.
