It was reported last night that a top NRL star could be headed to Super League.
Tyrone Peachey is a player with amazing utility value being able to play loose-forward, centre, in the halves and hooker.
The 31-year-old started at Cronulla Sharks before joining Penrith Panthers where he made over 100 appearances in his first stint.
After three seasons with Gold Coast Titans and one with Wests, Peachey is back with the Penrith Panthers and is impressing back at his old club.
In his career he has made 194 appearances in the NRL scoring 52 tries and played every State of Origin game in the 2018 series.
However, Peachey is set to come to Super League as he chases one last big contract according to the Mole of Wide World of Sports.
He made over 100 metres in his last game and doesn’t have a deal beyond the end of last year and has been mentioned to several Super League clubs with plenty showing interest.
But who could these clubs be?
The Tigers currently have a quota spot after the retirement of Jake Mamo who has yet to be properly replaced. As Andy Last begins his rebuild at the Jungle, someone of Peachey’s quality could be very useful.
Often a side who bring in top NRL stars, the Dragons already have a quota spot open. In many ways he could be the ideal replacement for Sam Tomkins freeing up Arthur Mourgue to play fullback as he covers the halves and other roles.
Another side entering a rebuild and Hull FC could do a lot worse than add someone of Peachey’s quality to their squad for 2024.
Leigh have already signed some big names recently and Peachey would be another and see them take their next step towards success. However, they would have to lose a quota player to sign him.
Leeds have four quota players off contract three of which are in the backs which is where Peachey thrives. He could come in and play centre or the halves for Leeds.
Warrington Wolves have had success when signing NRL stars lately and Peachey could be next especially with Peter Mata’utia off contract and Stefan Ratchford getting older.
