Elijah Taylor has finally made it - the classy 21-year-old makes his test debut tomorrow morning.
But his arrival as a bona fide star was cemented earlier this week when a story appeared suggesting he might switch to rugby.
He joins Simon Mannering and Manu Vatuvei as Warriors recently said to be pondering a code switch.
Pretty darn good company.
A dual-code rugby star as a schoolboy, Taylor kept to the script by admitting anything was possible once his current two-year deal with the Warriors expired.
No point throwing away those bargaining chips, after all.
But don't expect Taylor to start chasing kicks for a living any time soon.
A potential captain of both the Kiwis and Warriors, Taylor's bankability is in league and that is where he'll stay.
The Warriors have been in negotiations with one of this year's breakout stars over a long-term upgrade and extension for several months.
A deal has been delayed by Taylor changing management but the parties are believed to be close and Taylor's future should be confirmed shortly after he returns from the Kiwis tour.
Less likely to be staying beyond 2012 is James Maloney.
The recruitment of Thomas Leuluai for 2013 is a clear signal the Warriors don't expect to retain Maloney long-term.
The club has been attempting to re-sign Maloney since May..
However a Roosters club that has shed Todd Carney and will be contemplating the looming retirement of Braith Anasta may also be a serious player.
