When Brodie Croft burst onto the scene in 2018, he looked like the next big thing.
Croft was filling the boots of Cooper Cronk at the Melbourne Storm after Cronk headed over to Sydney Roosters.
He then persisted to pick apart the Leeds Rhinos in the World Club Challenge as he seemingly put the NRL on notice.
But things didn’t quite go to plan from there as he ended up battling with Ryley Jacks for the halfback spot.
In the end, Jahrome Hughes would take the role and Croft would move to Brisbane Broncos but at a struggling club he was unable to show his quality and thus he joined Salford Red devils for 2022.
He set the world on fire in Super League last year with his running game devastating teams routinely.
He picked up the Man of Steel and guided Salford to the semi-finals and had he not been absent after a failed Head Injury Assessment perhaps the Red Devils could have claimed a famous win over eventual Champions St Helens.
According the Mole of Wide World of Sports, this has seen Croft stir up plenty of interest in the NRL as clubs deal with a shortage of halfbacks down under.
However, the Mole also reported that NRL clubs hoping to sign Croft would have to wait until 2024 with Croft set to stay at Salford in 2023.
A fact further cemented by him agreeing to a sponsorship at Salford in 2023.
