Does that mean he has signed or they just have the option of signing him?

They have the rights to sign him. Would think it is pretty unlikely he doesn't get signed after being selected so high tho. Being a Generation Adidas player, his salary won't be included in the salary cap. He does however fill a Visa slot for them but they are traded all the time, so doubt it will be a massive hurdle.

Cheers for that,  thought that might be the case.  What is generation adidas?

Edit - I just looked it up.

Did he manage to get any kind of kiwi citizenship?  Can't help but feel the Nix (Rudan) made a huge mistake in not trying to keep him here.

Not that I know of. Similar story to Pizzuto though I think Harris spent longer here but no not gonna happen, sadly.

Its gutting both slipped through the Nix.  

These are the kinds of players first teams are supposed to keep, letting go of the chaff.

See: Steven Taylor coming up through the NU academy and being good enough to play Prem footie for them vs Bally being let go by City because he wasn't good enough for the senior team.  We've done the reverse!

You're comparing apples to kiwi fruit.

Ball & Taylor both English boys at the time in academies for English club teams. Pizzuto and Harris both foreign boys at the academy of NZ's only pro team.

A League teams can only have 5 visa slots. Dome said once that they looked hard at offering Harris a prized visa spot, but he was still a kid at the time, who had played only a few games of senior men's football (with Weenix). Would have been a very big call at the time. He then left for a US College. I suspect now he will try throw in his lot with the US national age group system (not good enough for England, and his other national team option Hong Kong being too shark???).

Pizzuto I think was never staying long. Seems a proud Mexican lad, who was a bit of a star in one of the age group World Cups for Mexico from memory.

AWs/FFs already recruit more than their fair share of players with tenuous NZ links.

To be picked for the All Blacks, you have to be playing and living in NZ. Most of the Island boys were either born here, or came to NZ at a young age. The various Sth African guys & girls playing for Black Caps or Silver Ferns have made a life for themselves in NZ. International rugby league is a joke, so really not worthy of discussion with the other codes.

Guys like WeeMac, Smith & Themi have been good servants to the AWs - but apart from WeeMac's time at the Nix, have barely set foot on NZ soil in their lifetimes. Many of the Aussie raised AWs the same. Though yes Smeltz, Moss, Durante and Stensness have all played for the Nix.

Anyway Pizzuto's a Mexican & Harris is English/Hong Kongese

 Hopefully nothing too serious though quite young to need a clean up of the meniscus already? Still wish him a quick recovery

Hasn't featured in a match day squad since 17th May. Hopefully that knee surgery wasn't to repair an ACL injury.
