NRL star could be set for Super League switch after latest development

Daniel Tupou is one of the best wingers on the planet.

He is an NRL winner and shone in the World Cup for Tonga.

A huge, tall and powerful winger, he is a dangerous force on the flank and has been a consistent performer in the NRL.

However, there was talk he was headed to Super League or rugby union with the Sydney Morning Herald reporting that the winger was considering “a big money move to Super League” around February.

They stated: “Daniel Tupou will soon have to decide whether to remain at the Sydney Roosters – and complete the tallest, most intimidating back line in the NRL – or entertain a big-money move to the Super League or Japanese Rugby.”

This all came after the news about England international Dom Young had signed for the club.

Now another promising young Englishman has followed suit in the shape of Wakefield Trinity winger Lewis Murphy whose move down under was confirmed.

Following this Australian publication Zerotackle reported that it was becoming more and more likely that he will leave the Roosters in search of a new deal elsewhere.

Thus the Super League switch itself becomes more likely with Super League being one of his most likely destinations.

Back in February St Helens CEO said the club would be silly not to be interested in a winger of his quality.
