Exclusive: Further details on the race for ex-Huddersfield Giants man and when a decision will be made

This morning came the news that five Sydney based clubs were chasing England winger and Newcastle Knights man Dom Young.

Young underlined his quality with an outstanding brace of tries for England in their 60-6 win over Samoa on Saturday which were nothing short of world class.

Young was born in Wakefield, came through the system at Huddersfield making his Super League debut in 2020 prior to making the switch to the NRL recording one of the competition’s fastest speeds during his breakout season in 2021.

Since then he has only kicked on and was scoring tries for fun in 2022 for the Knights which resulted in a call up to the England squad and keeping England’s all-time leading try scorer Ryan Hall out of the side by taking a spot on the wing outside Kallum Watkins.

Not only did he score two outstanding tries against Samoa but he also registered over 160 metres as he, Watkins and co led the way.

Thus, it is not surprising that clubs are queuing up for his signature in 2023 and beyond but Serious About Rugby League understands that no official offer has yet been tabled to Young’s management but interest has indeed been registered.

However, it is said that Young will consider all options including Newcastle themselves who are keen to resign the winger.

Nonetheless, no decision will be made until after the World Cup with Young keen to focus on helping England to success in the tournament.

Thus, don’t expect to hear any news about Young’s future beyond the World Cup until after England’s exit from the tournament meaning it is likely to be over a month until news breaks over where he will be in 2023.

Sadly, it is unlikely that we will see him in Super League any time soon.
