Hiku, who was named in the Kiwis' Rugby League World Cup last week, has signed a three year deal after a stint with the Warrington Wolves in the English Super League.

The 24-year-old spent one season at the Warriors back in 2012 but will spend three years at the Auckland club this time round.

Love-Henry meanwhile has signed a one year deal after two years with the Brisbane Broncos.

The duo join Kiwi captain Adam Blair, second rower Tohu Harris and backline utility Gerard Beale along with 2017 Mate Ma'a Tonga international Leivaha Pulu as the new signings for the Warriors.

The Warriors finished 13th on the NRL ladder this season, recording just seven wins out of 24 matches to miss the playoffs for the sixth year in a row.
