Gareth Widdop will be staying in Super League.
That’s according toThe Australian’s Brent Read, who said on Triple M that Widdop will be staying at Warrington for the foreseeable future.
“It looks like he’s now going to stay in England” Read told Triple M.
“Canberra were the club that were moving for Gareth Widdop but they’ve basically been told (he) looks like he will stay in England now.
“It’s a bit of a backflip on Gareth’s behalf because he had been shopped around the NRL for a long time now – basically all season he’s been shopped around the NRL and didn’t really get any bites.
“It was only the past few weeks he started to get any interest and Canberra was one of those clubs, but it sounds like now he’s decided to stay in England.
“So you can put a line through him among those playmakers that were on the open market.
The halfback’s former club St George Illawarra gave Widdop the green light to return to another NRL club, but the 32-year-old is enjoying his rugby at the Halliwell Jones Stadium enough to stay in the UK.
