English Super League players hold ‘talks’ with Dolphins boss Wayne Bennett

With a new NRL side appearing from 2023 and beyond, it’s no surprise that they have been trying to lure a number of stars to the club.

Led by veteran head coach and former Great Britain boss Wayne Bennett, the Dolphins have been trying to piece together a major recruitment drive in a bid to actually have a team ready to take on Australia’s finest next year.

That has included trying to lure both domestic and players abroad to their side.

And, Bennett confirmed to Zerotackle that he has had contacts with numerous players in Super League, but that Wigan Warriors’ Kai Pearce-Paul will not be joining the Dolphins’ revolution next season, with the Newcastle Knights his reported destination.

“We’ve talked to a number of new players in the UK but he’s gone to Newcastle as far as I understand,” Bennett said.

St Helens’ Konrad Hurrell and Leeds Rhinos’ Blake Austin have both been linked with a move to Bennett’s side following the culmination of the 2022 Super League season.

Newcastle flier Edrick Lee has become the latest to commit to the Dolphins, whilst others such as Felise Kaufusi and the Bromwich brothers will bring much needed experience to the line-up.
