Amazing rugby league starlet set for rugby union move

We have seen Chris Aston leave Wigan Warriors, Kyle Eastmond depart St Helens and return to Leeds Rhinos and even new Warrington Wolves Head Coach Sam Burgess left South Sydney Rabbitohs all to have a crack at rugby union.

Even recently we saw Catalans Dragons star and the tallest player in Super League history Corentin Le Cam who left the French side to move to rugby union but is now back in the thirteen man code in the French Elite One Championship.

Meanwhile St Helens star Regan Grace left the Saints to go to St Helens. It is a trend that has existed for a long time and seems to only be one way.

Now another star has been approached in the shape of NRL starlet Tallis Duncan.

One of the next bright stars in the sport, Rugby Australia are interested in the rookie after he impressed in the first team and being one of the best players in the South Sydney Rabbitohs side lately.

But according to the Mole of Wide World of Sports, he could be headed to rugby union.

There has been talk for a while that rugby union is set to raid rugby league for talent especially in Australia ahead of the 2027 World Cup which will be held down under.

They have already signed generational talent Joseph Suaali’i from Sydney Roosters.

Now Australia coach Eddie Jones has been spotted at Queensland training and has not been shy about naming his potential targets.

“Munster could play any game, couldn’t he?,” Jones said via News Corp

“And definitely Tino (Fa’asuamaleaui) could play in the back row in rugby. (David) Fifita would be the same. They would be great backrowers.”

“You’ve got Munster who is a warrior, isn’t he? Whatever team he plays for he makes them play better,” he said.

“Then you’ve got Harry Grant who has something a bit special around the ruck.

“The two guys who’ve really impressed me are two of the veterans in Ben Hunt and DCE (Daly Cherry-Evans). They’re in their middle 30s, but they’re so fit and dedicated to the game.”

“We want to get back players who played rugby and are maybe playing rugby league now and want to come back,” Rugby Australia chairman Hamish McLennan added.

“We’re just focused on the World Cup now. It’s challenging, but also a fantastic opportunity because we can’t be any lower in rugby at the moment.

“This is our opportunity to create a different picture for people about rugby.”

Following this, Rugby Pass has reported that Eddie Jones is set to sign three or four NRL stars in time for the World Cup.
