Exclusive: Ex-Warrington Wolves man almost certain to make Super League return as negotiations progress successfully

Ben Murdoch-Masila has shone in Super League in the past and could do so again in the near future.

The powerful forward made his name in Super League with Salford Red Devils.

He started his career with Wests Tigers in the NRL prior to a move to the Penrith Panthers making 58 NRL appearances prior to joining Salford.

It is forgotten how good the Red Devils were at the beginning of 2017 finishing in the top four in Super League prior to the Super 8s but in the end Salford slipped down the league.

This was largely down to Murdoch-Masila’s form which saw Warrington Wolves make a move for the forward and he made a big impression joining New Zealand Warriors for 2021 after helping the Wolves to Challenge Cup Final glory in 2019 having played in the 2018 Challenge Cup and Grand Finals.

After two seasons with the Warriors prior to making the move to the NRL’s newest club The Dolphins under former St Helens boss Kristian Woolf and ex-England boss Wayne Bennett.

However, that may happen now that Catalans Dragons are reportedly chasing the prop as a replacement for Dylan Napa who was released by the Dragons yesterday after being told along side now Warrington Wolves bound halfback Josh Drinkwater that they could leave the club but with no suitors, Napa was released.

Now the Dragons are in negotiations with Murdoch-Masila over a move to replace Napa according to French publication L’Independant.

But what ae the state of these negotiations?

Serious About Rugby League understands that the negotiations are progressing well and, provided there is no late stumbling block, the move will happen with simple i’s to be dotted and t’s to be crossed.

Therefore the affectionately named BMM will be in Super League with Catalans Dragons.
