Kiwi star Issac Luke open to Super League offers

Issac Luke is looking for a new club after New Zealand Warriors coach Stephen Kearney confirmed he leave at the end of 2019.

The 32-year-old took to Twitter earlier to deny retirement rumours and revealed he is open to all offers.

Luke is one of the game’s standout hookers of the last decade, with 270 NRL appearances and 37 New Zealand caps to his name.

A World Cup winner with the Kiwis in 2008, he is also a legend at the South Sydney Rabbitohs and was a key part of their 2014 Premiership-winning team.

Luke spent eight years with the Bunnies before his big money switch to the NZ Warriors in 2016, where he has been an ever-present in the team.

But after Kearney revealed Luke isn’t in his plans for 2020, and with many NRL clubs having no cap space remaining, the Kiwi legend may turn to England to finish his career.

Should that happen, he would become the latest superstar name to join Super League with James Maloney, George Burgess and Gareth Widdop already signed up to clubs for 2020.

Wests Tigers are rumoured to be the one NRL club considering Luke as an option for next year, though they are yet to make an offer to the veteran number nine.
