Ruben Wiki is set for a return to the sport with the Warriors. They are expected to announce his appointment to a high performance role within a few days. The Warriors are organising their off-field restructuring, which has seen former under-20s coach Tony Iro and first-grade assistant coach John Ackland switch roles and the appointment of Dean Bell as recruitment maestro for the 2010 season.
Although no contract has been signed, it's considered a mere formality Wiki will sign on the dotted line once one has been drawn up.
Wiki, who retired from rugby league at the completion of the 2008 season and now has a personal training qualification, said he was excited about being a mentor for the players next season.
