McKinnon signs with Warriors

The New Zealand Warriors have signed Parramatta fullback Wade McKinnon for the next three National Rugby league seasons.

The 25-year-old McKinnon will replace Kiwis Test fullback Brent Webb who leaves the club for English Super League side Leeds at the end of the season. McKinnon, who joined Parramatta from South Sydney in 2004, will join the Warriors after this season, already boasting some of the best statistics for a fullback.

He leads the competition in most runs from fullback, the best gains in kick-returns averaging 72 metres a game, and the most tackle breaks.
