Former Huddersfield Giants winger Dom Young was already making waves in 2022 before the Rugby League World Cup.
He had scored tries for fun during the NRL season for Newcastle Knights after recording an amazing speed in the 2021 season.
But the World Cup saw him really make a splash scoring nine tries in four games including a world class brace against Samoa, a 100 metre rush against France as well as four tries in 40 minutes against Greece.
Now though, as Young prepares for the new NRL season, he has opened up on what he enjoyed about the tournament hinting that he misses English crowds and enjoyed playing in front of them again after his Huddersfield exit.
“It was definitely amazing, very special,” Young said on the Knights website.
“Just getting that experience of playing in front of the England crowds and friends and family that I don’t get too much over here especially, was just pretty special.
“Singing the national anthem, hearing all the English fans and how they get behind the team, it’s hard to describe that feeling really.”
His future remains unclear with just 12 months left on his deal allowing clubs like South Sydney Rabbitohs to try and tempt him away.
It remains to be seen what decision he makes about his future.
