The CBA negotiations in the NRL are still ongoing as former Hull KR star Clint Newton as president of the Players Association (RLPA) negotiates a new deal for the NRL including an increased minimum wage and an increased salary cap.
However, for as long as the salary cap remains unconfirmed, clubs are unable to secure the signings they are expected to do so.
This has left Marty Taupau, a former Leeds Rhinos target, without a club with no club at present able to sign him despite interest from four clubs including Parramatta Eels.
The same could be said of winger Josh Mansour.
The former Penrith Panthers and South Sydney Rabbitohs winger has had interest from the Sydney Roosters and has been open about a move to Super League after starring for Lebanon during the Rugby League World Cup.
Now, Fox League has suggested that both, especially Mansour, could make the move to Super League as they remain in limbo because of the current situation.
The likes of Catalans Dragons, Salford Devils and Leigh Leopards still gave quota spots that they could use to bring them over to Super League.
The Dragons are looking for a forward and a centre so Taupau would be the perfect signing whilst Leigh are in the market for a middle and a winger after the loss of Blake Ferguson.
