England star Dom Young given huge price as NRL top try scorer odds revealed

With Boxing Day rugby league being played it brings a fresh reminder that the upcoming 2023 season is just around the corner with Super League starting just two weeks prior to the NRL.

The NRL is full of stars, many who saw at the World Cup and particularly in the final between Samoa and victors Australia, but one man who announced himself on the elite stage was England’s Dom Young.

Young came through at Huddersfield Giants but made the switch to the NRL when joining Newcastle Knights ahead of the 2021 season, but it was during 2022 that he took the game by storm.

Young tallied 14 tries in 21 appearances following four in six for his debut season and as a result he made Shaun Wane’s England World Cup squad.

The six foot seven inch tall speedster then put up eight tries at the World Cup, all coming during the group stage where he announced himself to Super League fans who may not follow the NRL.

Heading into his third season after that breakout World Cup campaign many expect Young to perform brilliantly again in a Knights side that only notched six wins last season.

Despite the incredible breakout he’s had Young is priced at a monster 50/1 to be the league’s top try scorer and with the top four places being paid out there’s plenty of value for him earn place money as well.

Last year’s top scorer Alex Johnston of South Sydney Rabbitohs is the favourite, priced at just 4/1, whilst World Cup top try scorer, Josh Addo-Carr of  Canterbury Bulldogs is 8/1.

One of the men who broke England hearts as part of Samoa’s team at the World Cup was Brian To’o and the Penrith Panther man is 20/1, whilst his full-back Joseph Suaalii is slightly shorter at 16/1.

Another English youngster plying his trade in the NRL is Herbie Farnworth who scored two in the semi-final defeat to Samoa and at odds of 100/1 the centre for Brisbane Broncos is a huge price, but would have to transform his game into more offensive than defensive in nature to trouble the likes of Johnston, Addo-Carr and even Young.
