Leeds Rhinos, Wigan Warriors, Hull FC and Huddersfield Giants have all lost players to the NRL for next year.
Leeds are set to lose Aidan Sezer to the Wests Tigers for next year whilst fellow halfback Jake Clifford is set to leave Hull at the end of the year to join North Queensland Cowboys in 2024.
Wigan and Huddersfield meanwhile had to confirm the exits of stars to the NRL before this season even started.
Kai Pearce-Paul and Will Pryce are both headed to Newcastle Knights in 2024 and it seems that more NRL clubs will be moving for Super League stars especially with some players already confirmed as leaving.
Catalans Dragons confirmed this week that Siua Taukeiaho will be released from the remainder of his contract at the end of the 2023 season for family reasons. The club will be ready to negotiate if the player finds a new opportunity elsewhere.
The Tongan prop arrived at the club this season and made 7 appearances for the Dragons in an injury-blighted season.
The club made it clear that they would like to wish him all the best for the future.
Now, the prop is being tipped for a huge NRL move by Australian publication Zerotackle.
In fact he is expected to sign for Canterbury Bulldogs in 2024 and that has been all confirmed by French publication Treize Mondial.
Speaking on his exit, Siua Taukeiaho said: “It’s been a disappointing season with the number of injuries I have had. I love this place, I wish I could have stayed longer but I need to put my family first. I remain 100% focused on my objectives with the club until the end of the season. I will do everything to get my body right to help the team to win the competition. I haven’t signed anywhere else. If that happens, both clubs will then negotiate.”
Bernard Guasch added: “We’ve had a discussion with Siua and we understand his decision to return to Australia. He is very frustrated with his season and would have liked to contribute more to the club’s performances. We know he is going to do everything he can to be competitive for the last games of the season and to help the team to achieve its objectives.”
