REPORTS: 13 NRL players offered to Super League clubs

13 more players from the NRL have been offered to Super League clubs, according to League Express journalist Matthew Shaw.

A raft of Aussie stars have already been linked with moves to Europe and now a fresh batch could be on their way very soon.

Australia international Josh Dugan and New South Wales representative Josh Reynolds are the headline names, with both set to be moved by Cronulla and Wests Tigers respectively due to salary cap pressures.

Josh Reynolds has reportedly been offered to Super League clubs.

Kiwi prop Russell Packer and Melbourne forward Christian Welch, who represented Queensland in this year’s State of Origin series, are also being touted for moves to the UK.

Wests Tigers’ 240-game stalwart Chris Lawrence, who we reported last week was considering a Super League move, has also been named.

Aisde from Reynolds, there are three other halfbacks reportedly on the market in the shape of Newcastle’s Mason Lino, Gold Coast’s Ryley Jacks and Canberra’s Sam Williams, the latter of whom played for Catalans in 2014 and Wakefield in 2017.

New Zealand Warriors duo Taane Milne (centre) and Sam Lisone (prop) are also available.

The 13 are completed by forward trio Sam McKendry of Penrith, Jack Murchie from Canberra and Brisbane’s Patrick Mago.

As ever, overseas quota spots will restrict how many are able to make the move, while some are also likely to atrract attention from high-spending Championship sides. The only top-flight clubs with quota space are Catalans, Salford, St Helens, Wakefield and Wigan.
