Cordner won’t rule out Super League move

Sydney Roosters captain Boyd Cordner says he would love to end his career in Super League.

The 26-year-old is in England preparing for Sunday’s World Club Challenge against Wigan and has acknowledged the quality of their counterparts domestic competition.

Speaking in the build-up to the clash at the DW Stadium, the Australian international revealed he would one day like to play in Super League.

“I’ve still got a lot of stuff I want to tick off in the NRL before I think about heading to England,” Cordner said.

“I’m sure there’ll be a bed there for me though if I ever do.”

The Roosters are looking to win their first World Club Challenge title since 2014, when Cordner and company beat Wigan 36-14 at the Allianz Stadium in Sydney.

However, the lead up to this year’s match on English soil has been marred by a number of billboards in America proclaiming the NRL premiers as world champions.

Part of a marketing ploy by the NRL erected in Super Bowl host city Atlanta, the billboards have not gone down well in the North of England with Cordner admitting they are not ideal.

“It was a marketing ploy from the NRL which we’ve nothing to do with,” he said.

“It’s not ideal. It was a choice by them (the NRL) to create some awareness but we as a club can honestly say that we didn’t have anything or any choice in how that went down.”
