Newcastle Knights duo Adam Clune and Jake Clifford offered to Super League sides

With the end of the season firmly in sight, there is set to be a great deal of movement ahead of 2023.

For Super League sides, a lot of their business has been completed with teams attempting to get in early in order to get one over on their rivals but to also be as ready as can be for the start of pre-season.

For one NRL side in particular, this off-season will be a time of great reflection and trying to understand why things have gone so wrong.

That team is of course the Newcastle Knights who have endured a mightily difficult year in 2022 under Adam O’Brien.

At times, the Knights have looked lost and rudderless with O’Brien failing to find a halfback partnership that can actually do some damage.

Throughout the year, Wests Tigers halfback Luke Brooks has been linked with a move to Newcastle, but there has yet to be any kind of deal signed.

That being said, The Mole at the Wide World of Sports is reporting that both Adam Clune and Jake Clifford have been offered to Super League sides.

Just 24 years of age, Clune is highly rated, but despite being offered to the Warrington Wolves in Super League, he will not be making the move to the Halliwell Jones Stadium.

Clune did have some well-publicised personal issues that led to him being axed from the Newcastle side earlier in the season, but he is still one playmaker who Knights fans do not want to see leave.

With Gareth Widdop already confirmed to be leaving Warrington after three years at the Halliwell Jones Stadium, it remains to be seen which direction they will now go in with Powell clearly keen to get another halfback to partner George Williams, with Riley Dean keeping the pressure up as back-up.

Meanwhile, Clifford himself is still only 24 with a big future ahead of him, but that could well be in Super League too.
