Josh Mansour has really caught the eye during the Rugby League World Cup starring for Lebanon.
The veteran NRL winger is on the look out for a new club in 2023 after being let go by South Sydney Rabbitohs and said he was open to a move to Super League which no doubt put clubs on red alert.
However, any Super League club hoping to bring him to the competition had better act fast with the Daily Telegraph reporting that the winger could be set to join Souths’ biggest rivals Sydney Roosters in 2023.
It’s a move Mansour himself has pursued speaking with Roosters assistant and former Warrington Wolves star Matt King.
This connection could be what sees Mansour join the Roosters in 2023 with the winger saying recently:
“I have already chirped into his (King’s) ear,” he said.
“The Sydney Roosters are a great club. If an opportunity arose, I would definitely explore it.”
Though this is not a done deal by any means, the winger is not worried about his future perhaps because of the number of Super League suitors he would certainly.
He said: “I am extremely determined. I always wanted to come here first – main focus – and after that see what happens. It is a bit of a weird situation to be in, a bit stressful,
“I am not going to lie, my wife is hitting me up asking what am I going to do, I am telling her to be patient. Whatever happens, happens.”
