Ex-NRL winger made available to Super League teams

Ex-NRL winger Brendan Elliot has been made available to Super League teams with his exit from the Leigh Centurions.

Elliot only joined the Lancashire club midway through 2021 after initially signing in February, but injury meant the winger – who can also play fullback – didn’t debut until May.

11 appearances later and Elliot was left without a club as Leigh were relegated from the top flight.

Elliot began his career at the Sydney Roosters, making 14 appearances between 2014 and 2016, scoring nine tries in the process before a move to the Newcastle Knights arguably enabled the 27-year-old to find the best form of his career.

Ten tries in 23 appearances and the winger was once more on the move in 2018, this time to the Gold Coast Titans.

Just three appearances later, however, and Elliot joined the Manly Sea Eagles ahead of the 2019 season, scoring two tries in 25 games.

Elliot – who is nicknamed ‘Brendan the Brave’ for the tough way in which he plays the game – then came to the UK shores in 2021, but his stay in the top flight was cut short by Leigh’s relegation.

The Centurions, meanwhile, have cast their net wide in a bid to earn promotion back to Super League in 2022 with the likes of Tom Amone, John Asiata and Caleb Aekins all joining the club.
