Australian journalist claims Super League star has asked top agent “to get him a club in Australia”

Ever since the World Club Challenge, there has been a heightened interest in St Helens stars from NRL clubs.

The main one was of course Jack Welsby with NRL clubs reportedly happy to pay a huge fee to tempt him down under.

But the hero of the World Club Challenge is another player who NRL clubs are said to be interested in and now one of Australia’s top journalists has claimed that Dodd is planning ahead for a move to the NRL.

The Sydney Morning Herald’s Danny Weidler was speaking on The Big Sports Breakfast and claimed that Dodd’s recent decision to join SFX Sports which was announced on their Instagram page three days ago is part of his plan to eventually earn a move to Australia.

“He’s employed George Mimis to get him a club in Australia basically,” Danny Weidler said on Sky Sports Radio’s ‘The Big Sports Breakfast’.

“I know he’s got a bit of time left on his contract at St. Helens. He’s one to watch.”

In terms of his contract, Dodd recently signed a new deal which will keep him at the club until the end of the 2024 season though there are options for him to remain at the club until the end of 2026.

But Dodd has time on his side meaning he could see out this deal and then benefit from preparing now for an NRL move which is the belief of Weidler.

That said, NRL clubs are eager for halfbacks now with a limited number of halfbacks coming off contract at the end of this season.

This could see clubs down under push hard for an earlier move.
