Rumors circling he is looking for a new club because he is unlikely to see first grade @the warriors.
Word on the street is Bulldogs & Tigers are showing interest.
Here is his profile: http://www.warriors.co.nz/our-team/player/142/12/James-Gavet
Could be a handy depth signing.
I think he’d be a starter in no time.
Any one else got any more juicy deets on this scoop?
I read the other day (from memory it may have been on zerotackle.com) that Tigers were front runners for his signature. Warriors have big raps on him, just hasn’t been able to get a shot with Packer, Matalino, etc in the lineup and performing. This may explain Sheens’ trip to NZ at their junior games.

Bulldogs shore up NRL list with MacDougall
November 1, 2011 - 9:57AM
Canterbury have retained Michael Lett for the 2012 NRL season and bolstered their squad with the arrival of Luke MacDougall and James Gavet today, the official start of the club’s pre-season training.
MacDougall, the younger brother of Adam and Ben, returns to rugby league after sitting out the 2011 season despite his decision to cut short a stint with English rugby union club Saracens in March.
MacDougall started his career with Cronulla in 2002 and has also had stints at South Sydney, St George-Illawarra, Newcastle and Melbourne.
Lett started in just three NRL matches for the Bulldogs in 2011 but was retained on a one-year deal after finishing the NSW Cup season with a premiership. “It’s great to have Letty, Luke and James on deck ahead of pre-season,” Bulldogs coach Jim Dymock said. "Letty has got a heap of pace and he can certainly sniff out a try, blokes like him are hard to find.
"We’re a bit light on in the outside backs so having him and Luke on board will be important for us. “Luke’s a quality player with 70 NRL matches under his belt, and like Letty he’s a proven finisher.”
Gavet, uncapped at NRL level, has signed a two-year deal with the Bulldogs after three years with the Warriors.
He was named prop of the year in the NSW Cup after a strong season with the Warriors’ feeder team the Auckland Vulcans.
“James on the other hand is a big unit in the middle of the field and he’s got a great offload on him,” Dymock said.
“We got plenty of opportunities to look at him first hand during the NSW Cup season and he’ll be a valuable addition to the squad.”
