Denny Solomona linked with stunning switch

Denny Solomona could switch his allegiance from England to Samoa following the new eligibility rules coming into force in rugby union.

World Rugby has changed its eligibility rules meaning that, from January 2022, a player can represent another country following three years of not playing.

It’s a move that could, in theory, therefore happen straightaway given that former Castleford Tigers star last played for England back in 2017, according to The Roar.

The former Castleford Tigers and London Broncos winger set Super League alight after he made the move to the Jungle ahead of the 2015 Super League season.

He broke the competition’s single-season try-scoring record with 40 in a remarkable first season with the Tigers in 2016, before leaving at the end of that season in controversial circumstances.

Solomona declared he had ‘retired’ from rugby league in a bid to swap codes and he duly did that, with Sale having to pay a six-figure fee to Castleford in compensation.

The flying winger won five England caps, scoring a debut try against Argentina in 2017, but was due to be out of contract at the end of the season.

In his time with the Sharks, the New Zealand-born flyer scored 47 tries in 98 appearances for Sale during his five years at the club.

Now, Solomona has moved back home after his exit from Sale and looks destined to sign for another club Down Under.
