Sky pundit backs Super League clubs to chase “steal” of a signing

Right now there is as much focus on what Super League players are doing behind the scenes as there is on the pitch as players determine their futures.

At Wakefield Trinity, with the threat of relegation, many players face uncertain futures and one of their best players could be in high demand in the shape of exciting halfback Mason Lino.

In the final year of his deal, Sky Sports pundit Jamie Jones-Buchanan believes he could be worth as little as £80,000.

He described him as an absolute steal for anyone who could sign him:

“I thought he was outstanding last year Mason Lino. Wakefield have not been that enterprising with ball in hand this year but when they have been he’s been all over it.

“93 appearances and 29-years-old, he’s got a lot of miles and experience in him. A salary cap of £80,000 that is an absolute steal.

“He’s not a guy who is putting the cue down.”

Meanwhile, Jon Wilkin added: “In a salary cap sport it’s all about value for money and Mason Lino at that salary is value for money.”

Lino has been linked with the likes of Leeds Rhinos – whose halfbacks are out of contract at the end of this season – and Wigan Warriors. Cade Cust is also out of contract.
