The Warriors 2016 recruitment plans continue to evolve but the club denies reports they are looking to sign Kangaroos forward Nate Myles.
A story out of Sydney today has the Warriors in a bidding war for Myles' services along with his current club, the Gold Coast Titans, and the Penrith Panthers, but managing director Jim Doyle said the 29-year-old Queensland representative is not on the club's radar.
"We are not chasing Myles and have not made any offer," Doyle told the Herald via text message this morning.
Doyle told reporters on Friday the Warriors still have room under the salary cap even after signing both Issac Luke and Roger Tuivasa-Sheck, with the early release of Sam Tomkins having freed up money to cover the Kiwis test fullback's arrival.
"We got Roger who is replacing Sam [Tomkins], so really, one player in and one player out, there's no salary cap difference," Doyle said.
"We went after Jason Taumalolo, Kieran Foran and we weren't successful there but we've been successful with Issac. So we may have a little bit left."
Sam Rapira's departure for the UK Super League at the end of the season will assist the Warriors' 2016 finances, and Doyle indicated Luke's signing would leave the club in a position to grant Chad Townsend's request for a release on compassionate grounds.
"We're working with his manager and a couple of potential clubs that are looking to sign him. And potentially now we've got a replacement in a slightly different position," Doyle said.
Tuivasa-Sheck's arrival at Mt Smart could also impact on Under 20s fullback Brad Abbey's future at the Warriors, with Canterbury, Melbourne, Gold Coast and Penrith all reportedly keen on luring the talented 18-year-old.
