Yesterday the Daily Telegraph reported that five Sydney based clubs were chasing former Huddersfield Giants youngster Dom Young.
Young, born in Wakefield, made his Super League debut with the Giants in 2020 before moving to Newcastle Knights in the NRL where he has really made a name for himself especially in 2022 with tries galore.
These tries earnt him a call-up to Shaun Wane’s England squad for the World Cup and on his full debut for England he scored a world class brace against Samoa to help England the game comfortably despite being underdogs going into the match.
Unsurprisingly, this has only drummed up the interest surrounding the winger, which was already present before resulting in these five clubs chasing him.
Yesterday, Serious About Rugby League exclusively revealed that no offer had yet been tabled, that Young was open to the options and that no decision would be made until after the World Cup.
Now we can exclusively reveal the clubs who have shown an interest in the former Huddersfield winger over the last 12 months.
Canberra Raiders, Melbourne Storm, the Dolphins and North Queensland Cowboys are all clubs from outside of Sydney who have had an interest in the outside back over the last year but are clearly not the five named by the Daily Telegraph yesterday.
However, these five Sydney clubs do include Manly, South Sydney and the Canterbury Bulldogs whilst it’s likely the Sydney Roosters are among those presently chasing his signature.
The fourth and fifth clubs remain unnamed but as aforementioned the Roosters are likely to be in contention alongside the Rabbitohs, Sea Eagles and Bulldogs.
Newcastle are of course very keen on keeping the player as well. The winger will become available on the open market on November 1st.
