We have already seen one son of a former Super League star head over to the NRL and in the years to come we could see another.
Recently, Huddersfield Giants star and the son of former St Helens, Bradford Bulls and Hull FC man Leon Pryce, Will Pryce confirmed that he will be headed to the NRL with Newcastle Knights.
Now, speaking to Serious About Rugby League, Keith Mason has said he would encourage his son Lukas to follow suit.
Lukas is currently in the Wigan Warriors academy and has the same agent as Pryce in the shape of Kevin Brown.
Brown has apparently told Mason that Lukas’ future is in the NRL.
“Lukas has the same agent as Will, Kevin Brown and me and Kevin are good friends. He believes Lukas’ pathway is in the NRL and because he’s so fit, when you see him doing the fitness tests, he’s probably one of the fittest in the club. He’s a unit as well,” Keith Mason said to Serious About Rugby League.
“He has natural fitness, but I think what I would like him to do is establish himself at Wigan and if he keeps progressing, Kev has said the NRL will be the next step.
“The only thing I will say about why I think he should go to the NRL, I went when I was 19 years old, it was an amazing experience, I played with some of the best players whoever played Cam Smith and all them lot and I came back 10 times the player and signed with Saints and had success at Saints.
“Lukas is very dedicated, he doesn’t drink, he doesn’t go out on weekends. He’s so dedicated to who he wants to be and that’s a rugby player.
“The money over there is much higher, if he has the chance to go to Australia, he has my full support because you’re going to make as much money as you can because it’s a short career and you put your body through so much stress but I’d like him to really stamp his place here and going over there at 22 or 23 would be good for him.”
