NRL outside back set for immediate move to Super League club

At this time in the season we start to see mid-season signings.

In 2022 there were some huge transfers mid-season such as Zak Hardaker’s move to Leeds Rhinos, Matt Dufty’s Warrington Wolves arrival and Toulouse Olympique bringing in Corey Norman and Daniel Alvaro.

But which clubs are in the market right now for mid-season signings?

Well one is the Catalans Dragons.

The French club started the season still wanting a prop and a centre after the departures of Dylan Napa, Dean Whare and Samisoni Langi. They have two quota spots open as consequence and it always seemed like if players in the pack and the centres become available they would bring them in but it is fair to say that they don’t appear as if they need it at the moment.

Nonetheless, according to reports they have made their move on Cronulla Sharks outside back Matt Ikuvalu.

According to Catalan Media, the centre is headed to Catalans immediately after being let go by the Sharks.

The 29-year-old former Sydney Roosters back is set to join the Dragons immediately so long as the paperwork and visas can get ticked off in the next few days.

It’s an important signing not just for now but moving forward with the Dragons of course losing a key back in the shape of Sam Tomkins with the former England skipper retiring at the end of the season.
