Hull KR set to land Parramatta Eels star Tom Opacic in huge deal

Super League clubs are doing their utmost to bring in world-class players in order to prepare the best they possibly can for the 2023 season.

With a whole host of signings confirmed and many still to be announced such as the transfer of Mike Cooper from Warrington to Wigan, the wheels are turning over potential moves.

And, a lot of Super League clubs have been eyeing up stars from abroad.

Tom Opacic has become the latest player to quit Parramatta, with the Eels centre inking a $500,000 deal with Hull KR according to the Daily Telegraph.

Opacic began his career with the Brisbane Broncos in 2016 but two shoulder reconstructions saw his game time cut miserably before a move to the North Queensland Cowboys in 2019 was thought to help refresh his career.

The 27-year-old played in the club’s successful NRL Nines squad in 2020, but has found his game time limited this season under Brad Arthur.

Opacic scored a try in the New South Wales Cup last weekend and has been included in the 22-man squad to meet the Roosters on Saturday night, but it remains to be seen whether or not he will be included in a starting line-up that was cut apart by the Canterbury Bulldogs in a shock defeat last weekend.
