Controversial NRL star could be bound for Super League

Former NRL star Curtis Scott is looking for a return to rugby league and Super League might wind up being his ultimate destination.

Scott lost his NRL career due to drinking and a court case where domestic violence charges against the former Melbourne Storm and Canberra Raiders after 72 NRL appearances.

His last appearance came in 2021 but he is still only 26 and believes he has a lot to give. Scott wants a return to the NRL including a clause in his contact that would sack him immediately for drinking such has been his commitment to bettering himself.

However, we have seen in the past that NRL clubs can be tentative to sign players in Scott’s position often resulting in a move to Super League almost to prove themselves to NRL clubs and that is where the future of the big and powerful centre could lie.

It is rumoured that he would consider the move to the UK should he fail to pick up an NRL contract.

Nonetheless, he is determined to make a return to the sport as he explained to the Daily Telegraph.

“A lot of the mistakes I’ve made happened when I was under the influence of alcohol,” Scott said, “I’ve cut it out of my life. I attend AA meetings.

“I am sorry,” Scott added, “I regret all the incidents heavily. They play on my mind daily. I’m extremely sorry I’ve brought the game into disrepute.

“I have to wake up and look at myself in the mirror every day and sometimes it’s hard to see.

“I want to prove to myself that I’ve grown as a person. I’ve made mistakes yes. But I’ve learnt from them. I want to help others.

“I am ready for the blowback. Everyone has their opinion of me and I don’t blame them for having a poor opinion of me. I own that. Now it’s about fixing my mistakes.

“Why should I be back? Because of the amount of work I’ve done on myself and continue to do. My remorse. I have been in programs. I know I’ve made mistakes but I feel like I can help people that have grown up similar to me or have similar issues I can help and benefit them.”
