Kyle Eastmond set for Rugby League return?

Kyle Eastmond Rugby League

Former St Helens half-back Kyle Eastmond could be set for a sensational switch back to Rugby League according to SunSport.

Eastmond, now 27, left Saints in 2011 to join Premiership Rugby Union outfit Bath, going onto make his international debut in 2013.

Since playing for England RU his career has stalled slightly, moving to London Wasps ahead of the 2016/17 campaign to try revitalise international hopes.

However, Eastmond has been ruled out for the rest of the season with an Achilles tendon injury and it’s rumoured he is now debating a move back to league.

After breaking onto the Rugby League scene in 2008, it was obvious Eastmond had something special as he was compared to dual-code international legend Jason Robinson.

He fast became a star for Saints scoring 433 points in just 74 appearances, persuading Bath to offer him a big contract to switch codes in 2011.

But after more than six years away, could Eastmond be set for a sensational return to Super League?

It is believed few teams would be able to afford his current wages, with the Oldham St Annes junior most likely having to take a pay cut if he wants to return to his first love.
