Almost every mid-season in Super League we see a big mid-season shake-up with lots of big mid-season signings changing the complexion of the league.
So, here are six big stars who could make the mid-season move to Super League sooner rather than later.
Gildart, like many others, left Super League to try his hand at the NRL. The former Wigan Warriors star joined Wests Tigers but when that didn’t work out he was linked with a move to Leeds Rhinos before joining Sydney Roosters on loan. After that he made the move to the Dolphins but nine rounds in, he is still yet to be named in a single squad for the club. There has been talk of a Super League return in 2024 but the longer he waits for game time the more likely an immediate switch.
Another former Super League star centre Dean Whare is reportedly headed back to Super League according to Sky Sports’ Jon Wells. He left Catalans Dragons at the end of last year and ended up in the Elite One Championship but a return to Super League is now on the cards.
This week former Hull FC and Leeds Rhinos target Kyle Flanagan was dropped by the Canterbury Bulldogs. If he remains outside the squad, Super League clubs could try and lure him over to the UK especially those who are struggling.
Another star in the Elite One Championship, the former Leeds Rhinos player could now make his long awaited return to Super League now that the French season is over.
Another NRL halfback who is getting talked about a lot. He has been linked with a move to Headingley in 2024 but as uncertainty looms over his future he too could possibly be tempted over to Super League if there is indeed a mid-season shake-up.
Yet another player who has shone in the Elite One Championship. Escare left Salford Red Devils at the end of last year and has been superb since making the move. Now the French league is over a return could be on the cards.
