NRL winner and World Cup star for Tonga Daniel Tupou is one of the best wingers around these days.
With a tall and powerful figure, he is a dangerous force on the flank and has been a consistent performer in the NRL.
However, there has been talk he was headed to Super League or rugby union with the Sydney Morning Herald reporting that the winger was considering “a big money move to Super League” in February.
They stated: “Daniel Tupou will soon have to decide whether to remain at the Sydney Roosters – and complete the tallest, most intimidating back line in the NRL – or entertain a big-money move to the Super League or Japanese Rugby.”
This all came after the news that England international Dom Young had signed for the club.
Now another promising young Englishman has followed suit in the shape of Wakefield Trinity winger Lewis Murphy whose move down under has now been confirmed.
Following this Australian publication Zerotackle reported that it was becoming more and more likely that he will leave the Roosters in search of a new deal elsewhere.
Thus the Super League switch itself becomes more likely with Super League being one of his most likely destinations according to reports.
Adding to this is the latest development of his injury which is set to force him out for some time.
Unable to prove his worth to his current or rival clubs, it could further propel him to Super League.
