Josh Hodgson in revealing contract clause that could throw his future in jeopardy

Josh Hodgson may well be at his new club for a short length of time.

That’s because Parramatta Eels hold an interesting contract clause which could allow them to cut the England international hooker after just one season.

The Sydney Morning Herald has reported that Parramatta have an option in their favour to trigger the final year of Hodgson’s two-year contract, which expires at the end of 2024.

But, with the hooker currently out for the season with a devastating knee injury, the Eels may well be tempted to move on quicker than first expected.

Hodgson has had to undergo a serious knee reconstruction after going down in Canberra Raiders’ first game of the season against the Cronulla Sharks.

The hooker now faces a race against time to be fit for his first season in Parramatta colours in 2023.

The 32-year-old has scored 14 tries in 138 games for the Raiders since debuting for the NRL back in 2015, whilst he has also scored 37 tries in 136 Super League games for Hull KR and has played 23 Tests for England and Great Britain.
