Hull FC and Salford-linked stand-off reportedly makes decision on future

Hull FC

Wests Tigers are suffering from a difficult 2024 season and the club are reportedly set to take drastic action in attempt to haul themselves away from the bottom of the NRL ladder. 

The Tigers have won the questionable prize of NRL’s wooden spoon for the last two seasons, having finished bottom of the pile in 2022 and 2023. They are currently bottom of the table again this season, two points adrift of the South Sydney Rabbitohs, who have improved recently with two victories.

Wests Tigers will bring in a major signing for 2025, with Jerome Luai joining the club from the Penrith Panthers. The size of Luai’s salary means that the club will be forced to balance the books, by offloading players elsewhere.

The Australian press reported that the club’s Chief Executive, Shane Richardson, had flown to the UK recently in an attempt to offload some of their under performing stars. Now, one of those players who has been linked with a move away has spoken up on their future.

Sullivan has been repeatedly linked with a move to Super League in recent weeks. Both Hull FC and Salford Red Devils have been reported to hold an interest in bringing Sullivan to the UK for 2025.

However, speaking to the Sydney Morning Herald, Sullivan has stated adamantly that he does not intend to leave the club, despite links with a move away. He has a contract for the next four years and insists he wants to see it out at the Tigers.

“100 per cent, I don’t plan on going anywhere anytime soon,” Sullivan told this masthead.

“I’m a Wests Tiger for the next four years, that’s what I plan on doing. Personally, I don’t think anything has changed”

Speaking of the impact the persistent rumours of an exit from the club, Sullivan admitted it has taken its toll. However, he believes he has the right support network in place to deal with the difficult times.

“At the end of the day we are all human, and it probably does take an effect on me. But I’ve got a really good support base around me, my Dad has been my biggest supporter ever since I was born. My sisters have good shoulders to lean on if you ever need someone to talk to. Everyone in the NRL looks after each other.

“It’s been tough, but it will only make me stronger.”
