Leeds Rhinos tried to sign Warrington Wolves star says agent

Top Super League stars are always going to be subject to offers from rival clubs.

However, there is one what if scenario that in light of recent events is really quite intriguing.

On Saturday, Ben Currie scored in his testimonial for Warrington Wolves against the Leigh Leopards.

However, he would not have reached his testimonial if he had made a very different decision the last time he was out of contract.

In 2020, Currie was in the final year of his deal and was in talks to sign for Leeds Rhinos as agent Craig Harrison revealed on the brilliant Show Me The Money UK TV YouTube channel.

He said: “The last time when he was out of contract he was in talks with Leeds and with quite a few other clubs. There were a lot of clubs in for him.

“Karl Fitzpatrick knew this, we were very transparent about it. But Ben has always stayed loyal to Warrington. It meant a lot to him.

“Ben at Warrington felt that emotion and love on Saturday and thought ‘wow.’ He’s in the last year in his deal, so it’s a big year for him.”

Still at Warrington, Harrison believes Currie needs a trophy now: “Do I think Ben needs to win something given the talent? Yes, I do, I think he needs to win the Grand Final, it’s the minimum expectation for someone of that ability.

“He had a lot going off in the World Cup year: he had a baby, Warrington weren’t hitting their straps, they had shocking year and he didn’t get in the squad. But we saw the ability of Ben on Saturday.”
