Nikorima has been left out of the Broncos lineup to play Souths on Thursday night with the NRL club giving the 25 year old time to consider a possible move.

Earlier this week The Courier Mail reported the Warriors are seeking the services of the 13-Test veteran after a groin injury to veteran Blake Green exposed their lack of playmaking depth.

The Broncos coach Anthony Seibold has decided to leave him out of this week's side because of speculation about the Kiwis playing future.

"He also has some decisions to ponder around his future, decisions that are not easy to sift through, and may affect his family.

"So considering the tight turnaround between matches, we think it is best he does not play against the Rabbitohs on Thursday.

"It will give Kodi the time and space to think through his decision."
