Warriors woo King Carlos

Carlos Spencer has been approached by the Warriors about a possible switch to league as he considers his future after a troubled start to 2005.

The Auckland first five-eighths, benched by the Blues and now sidelined with a fractured cheekbone, faces a difficult task to regain his All Blacks test jersey.

Spencer's agent David Jones confirmed to the League Correspondent that the 29-year-old had been approached by an intermediary for the Warriors, New Zealand's NRL franchise.

The Warriors are on the lookout for inside backs with Stacey Jones tipped to move to Europe. The Warriors have also expressed interest in boxer and former league star Anthony Mundine who wnats to return to the football field.

The Warriors confirmed they were interested in talking to Spencer if he was serious about a switch of codes.

Spencer has played 35 tests for the All Blacks in an international career that started in 1996.
