Could Leeds Rhinos’ Brad Dwyer move to a different Super League rival?

Since 2018, wily hooker Brad Dwyer has gone on to make over 100 appearances at Headingley in five seasons, but it appears as though his time at the West Yorkshire club could be coming to an end.

Sky Sports pundit Jenna Brooks a month ago revealed that Dwyer could be heading to the Totally Wicked Stadium in 2023 to join St Helens.

That seemed to mean that James Roby will be hanging his boots up at the end of this season, with Joey Lussick set to take over the number 9 shirt at Saints, but there is still a question mark over whether the veteran hooker will decide to retire considering how well he is currently playing.

Since beginning his career at Warrington Wolves, Dwyer has spent time on loan at London, Huddersfield and Swinton before he moved permanently to Leeds ahead of the 2018 season.

Now, though, with Corey Johnson being given a two-year deal and Kruise Leeming the ever-inspiring captain, Dwyer does look as though he is on the periphery at Headingley under new boss Rohan Smith.

And, even if Saints are not in for the hooker, then another Super League side surely would be considering his effectiveness off the bench and against a tiring ruck.

With Saints’ interest appeared to have cooled, however, Dwyer may well head in another direction with Salford Red Devils the club’s name being bandied about in rugby league circles.

Dwyer hails from the Lancashire side of the Pennines so a move ‘home’ wouldn’t be ruled out, though he has began a building project on a new house which he regularly provides updates on social media which means it may not be as straightforward as first thought.
