NRL star set to join former club after Leeds Rhinos transfer

Leeds Rhinos have completed some of the best transfer business in Super League ahead of the 2024 campaign.

The Rhinos started their business with an understated signing. They brought in Mickael Goudemand from the Catalans Dragons who brings depth, Super League experience and also winning experience to Headingley.

Leeds turned to the NRL for their next signings signing former Olympian and electric fullback Lachie Miller from the Newcastle Knights. That came as Leeds signed former Huddersfield Giants halfback Matt Frawley from the Canberra Raiders.

The Rhinos have since returned to Super League with their transfers bringing in the likes of Brodie Croft, Andy Ackers and Kieran Hudson.

Before this though the Rhinos signed former NRL winner Paul Momirovski from the Sydney Roosters and it is this signing that could lead to a surprise signing at Sydney. To replace Momirovski, the Roosters could reportedly move for Michael Jennings after a three year ban from the game due to a failed drugs test.

This would be a surprise signing but a special moment as Jennings returns where he won a NRL title. He would be an ideal replacement for Momirovski. As for Momirovski, he is excited to sign for Leeds.

“I am excited to be joining the Rhinos,” he said, “As soon as I spoke to Rohan Smith, I felt that our philosophies on Rugby League aligned and I thought it would be a great fit for me and the next chapter of my career. I still feel like I have got a lot to learn and working with the coaches and players at Leeds will benefit me. I have had the privilege of playing in some great teams in the NRL and I believe in always looking for ways to grow.

“When speaking to Trent Robinson, he spoke very highly of Rohan and the Rhinos and I think it will be a great combination with all the other boys at Leeds. Every move I have made in my career has improved me and helped me find my best style of Rugby League. Moving to the other side of the word will be challenging, but I am excited about that. I can’t wait to play in front of the packed stadiums, the atmosphere looks insane and immersing myself in the culture in Leeds and Yorkshire.”
