Big Oliver Gildart decision made

Oliver Gildart is headed back to Super League.

The centre started his career at Wigan Warriors. He made his break out year in 2015 which concluded in a first Grand Final appearance.

Since then the centre has played in three more claiming two wins over Warrington Wolves in 2016 and 2018.

He has also played at Wembley in 2017 in the Challenge Cup Final.

At the end of 2021, the centre, who has starred for England in the past scoring a sensational try against New Zealand in 2018, left for the NRL but it didn’t quite work out at Wests Tigers.

There was then interest from Leeds Rhinos to bring him in until the end of 2022 but he ended up on a similar deal at Sydney Roosters.

Then going into 2023 his future was unclear but he went on to sign for the new boys in the NRL The Dolphins but hasn’t played for them once in 2023 and now the centre is headed to Hull KR next year in another major signing for the Robins.

Surprisingly, in the last two weeks Gildart found himself in the squad for the first time this season for the Dolphins seemingly climbing up the pecking order again.

However, this week he has been dropped out of the squad again.

With injuries mounting up at his next club, Hull KR, it becomes likely that the Robins could try and get the centre in early.

This is something coach Willie Peters admitted the club would be interested in but only if Gildart was too.

Thus, the decision of the Dolphins to again drop him means he could be tempted to come home much earlier.
