Denny Solomona drops great hint over next move after union exit

Denny Solomona’s exit from UK rugby union Sale Sharks was confirmed over a week ago, but, his next destination is somewhat unknown.

The former Castleford Tigers and London Broncos winger exited the 13-a-side code at the end of the 2016 Super League season in a rather controversial fashion.

Solomona had claimed he had ‘retired’ in order to take up a contract in the 15-a-side game, which would have meant Sale would not have to pay a fee to Castleford.

However, the Sharks ended up paying over six figures for the New Zealand-born flier with Solomona slotting straight into the union set-up.

An England call-up followed before a struggling last few months in Manchester was ended when the 28-year-old confirmed he would be exiting Sale immediately.

Now, though, Solomona has been signed up to giant New Zealand agent Orbit Sports Management, dropping the greatest hint yet that the former league man could sign a lucrative deal Down Under.

“All parties have agreed to terminate the deal early after Solomona expressed his desire to return to the southern hemisphere,” read a Sale Sharks statement at the time.

Director of rugby Alex Sanderson said: “I’d like to thank Denny for his efforts during my time at the club and wish him all the very best for the rest of his career and beyond.”
