$1 million in the way of NRL new club The Dolphins securing signing in move which could impact Hull FC’s halfback hunt

The Dolphins are looking for a halfback.

The NRL’s newest club led by their oldest coach in former England Great Britain boss Wayne Bennett have chased the likes of Cameron Munster unsuccessfully and have recently had an eye on Newcastle Knights halfback Anthony Milford.

However, a new target has emerged in Wests’ struggling halfback Luke Brooks. Despite having huge potential, Brooks hasn’t been able to fire the Tigers to the play-offs as expected and has played second fiddle behind Jackson Hastings in 2022.

Brooks is currently earning just under one million Australian dollars at the club with that figure set to rise to $1.1 million next year.

This means that should The Dolphins want to secure his services they would likely have to match that figure to tempt him away.

This is according to Fox News down under.

Should they do so this may see Anthony Milford remain at Newcastle in a move that could be beneficial for Hull FC who are chasing Tex Hoy with the Knights wanted to keep due to Milford’s uncertain future.

Should Milford stay the door could be open for Hoy to join Hull FC.

The Black and Whites will be monitoring all things halfback related in Australia following the departure of Josh Reynolds as they look for Jake Trueman’s ideal partner.

Yesterday it was reported they had been turned down by Canterbury’s Kyle Flanagan.
