Sam Moa open to Super League and NRL offers as he plans to play on in 2021

Catalans Dragons’ prop Sam Moa is keeping his options open for 2021 after insisting he would love to play on next season.

The 33-year-old is approaching the end of his contract in Perpignan having made 80 appearances over four seasons for the French outfit.

A combination of injury and the coronavirus pandemic means Moa has now not played for over a year, leaving the former New Zealand and Tonga international restless for a return to action.

“I still have plenty to offer the sport,” Moa told Serious About RL. “It does all depend on how my arm and body hold up.

“Being on the sidelines has given me a lot more fire and desire to get back on the field and show everyone what I am capable of.

“First and foremost, my priority is getting back into the Catalans Dragons’ first team.

“I am hoping to be back for the first game in August against St Helens as it would be nice to get some game time back under my belt.

“After that, well I would love to play on at least for another year as I feel as though I still have plenty more to offer.

“I’ve just got to avoid another significant injury as all players try and do.”

Moa is no stranger to the sport in either hemisphere, having won silverware and achieved success in both parts of the world.

The Super League trophy is the only piece of silverware that has escaped his grasp throughout spells with Cronulla Sharks, Hull FC, Sydney Roosters and now the Dragons.

His experience and professionalism is likely to attract a number of suitors, with all options open at this stage for the no-nonsense forward.

“I feel as though I could deliver my best form for any club if any show interest and should my contract not be extended,” said Moa.

“I feel as though I am still at my peak, just like my days with the Sydney Roosters.

“My first priority at the moment is to get back playing but I am happy to explore my options.

“I am more than happy to remain with the Dragons but I am always up for a new challenge should it come.

“But for now I really want to get back on the field and demonstrate to everyone that I still have plenty more to offer this sport.”
