Leeds Rhinos target set to be offered multi-year deal

Reports emerged earlier this year that Leeds Rhinos are interested in signing NRL halfback Luke Brooks from the Wests Tigers.

Both of Leeds’ current halfbacks are coming to the ends of their deals and thus there is a degree of uncertainty about the position heading into 2024.

The pair do have plenty of history together playing alongside each other at Canberra Raiders when they finished in the top three of the NRL in 2016.

Both have been Man of Steel nominees during their time in Super League with Warrington Wolves and Huddersfield Giants respectively.

However, their time at Leeds has been up and down.

The two did help the Rhinos to the Grand Final in 2022 but Sezer missed it due to concussion protocols.

Thus, according to the Mole of Wide World of Sports, the Rhinos are interested in 28 year old Luke Brooks.

He is coming to the end of his deal but is yet to agree a deal to stay at the club despite the fact they let former Wigan Warriors and Salford Red Devils halfback join Newcastle Knights ahead of the new season.

Leeds are said to have a look at the halfback who could be said to suit the Super League style of play.

However, if there was any interest from the Rhinos, then they are set to miss out.

That is because according to the West Australian, Brooks is set to be offered a long term deal to stay with the Tigers.

Meanwhile former Hull KR boss and now Wests coach Tim Sheens has also had his say.

“Will he be here in 2024? Yeah,” Sheens said.

“As far as I am concerned, he will be. We will definitely be making an offer.

“It just comes down to how much that offer is and what other people are thinking and what he is thinking.

“We will be doing a bit of work with our players who are off contract over the next week and a half during the bye.”
