Reports: NRL side make their move for Super League star

Whilst Wigan Warriors, Leeds Rhinos, Warrington Wolves and Hull KR make promising announcements, there have been reasons for Hull FC, Leigh Leopards and Salford Red Devils to sweat.

Reports down under have claimed that Hull FC’s Jake Clifford, Leigh’s Edwin Ipape and Lachlan Lam and Salford’s Brodie Croft could all be headed to the NRL.

There has even been a suggestion that Jake Clifford has a clause in his contract allowing him to leave for the NRL should an offer come in from down under which comes from Fox League.

One of Super League’s most in form players, Clifford has looked like the best number seven in Super League.

Following this former Hull FC and Hull KR star Paul Cooke said he could return to the NRL and now a club has entered the race to sign him in the shape of his former club the North Queensland Cowboys.

Meanwhile, Wests Tigers, still looking for a halfback after Luke Brooks’ decision to join Manly Sea Eagles for 2024, are interested according to the Daily Telegraph who report:

“Wests Tigers have been offered Jake Clifford but a North Queensland homecoming looms more likely for the ex-Cowboys and Newcastle playmaker

“Clifford joined Hull FC this year but is expected to return to the NRL in 2024.

“The Cowboys have discussed signing the 25-year-old to add some depth to their halves.”

Hull Daily Mail have reported that an offer is on the table for the halfback but that the club will do everything they can to keep him.

However in a blow for the Black and Whites Jon Wells has reported on Sky Sports that the North Queensland Cowboys have made an offer for the halfback.

A worrying narrative headed into the derby against Hull KR.
