Stacey Jones not available for Kiwis

He still has that magic touch but little general Stacey Jones has ruled himself out of contention for New Zealand's clash with Australia next month at Suncorp Stadium.

The scheming halfback said he wouldn't be available for selection for the Brisbane match which takes place on May 8, the day after his 33rd birthday.

After one year out of rugby league, Jones made a shock return to the NRL this season and has shown he still has a knack for creating tries.

Not that it will extend to playing for the reigning world champions.

"No, I have just come back for one season and just want to get things sorted out there," he told AAP.

"I have only signed for one year with the Warriors and then that's it.

"Hopefully we have Lance Hohaia coming back next week and that is going to put some pressure on some of us players."

Jones set up his side's opening try with a pinpoint kick in Sunday's 24-22 loss to the Knights in Newcastle.

The Warriors hope to have skipper Steve Price and wrecking ball Manu Vatuvei back on board for next weekend's home match against the Roosters.

Hohaia is an outside chance for the clash.
