njured second-rower Tohu Harris won’t play rugby league until next year after the Warriors declared him unavailable for Kiwis international duty.
The classy forward’s season has been sabotaged by a foot injury suffered in mid- June which has proved more damaging than first feared.
Warriors coach Stephen Kearney made it clear the 27-year-old won’t add to his 16 Tests until 2020 at the earliest.
New Zealand face Australia in Wollongong on October 25 before home Tests against Great Britain over the two following weekends.
“I’m saying now that I won’t be making Tohu available but I’m pretty confident that he’s going to be saying the same thing,” Kearney said.
“He’s the type of fella that he doesn’t want to put himself at risk given he’s missed 10 games this year, missed half of the season. He’s still having issues with it.”
