St Helens set for shock immediate signing

In recent times we have seen Leeds Rhinos, Wigan Warriors and others complete 2024 signings but clubs like Warrington Wolves, Hull KR, Castleford Tigers and Wakefield Trinity have worked hard to secure signings for the here and now.

Warrington drafted in Wakefield’s Jordy Crowther after Trinity signed Hull FC star Josh Griffin despite the fact he is mid way through a suspension.

Across the city, Hull KR have brought in halfback Brad Schneider from the NRL to help their season run in which is the approach Castleford Tigers have taken as they look to fend off relegation bringing in two new names yesterday.

At the other end of the table Champions St Helens may also be set to act in the transfer market and according to the Daily Telegraph they are set to sign Moses Mbye from St George Illawarra Dragons.

The versatile NRL star has been shopped around clubs for a long time and is set to make the move to St Helens to replace Joey Lussick.

The Sydney Morning Herald reported that St Helens hooker Lussick is being targeted by former club the Parramatta Eels.

The Eels want to bring in the hooker immediately to ease their injury woes.

This comes as former Hull KR hooker Josh Hodgson deals with an injury of his own having made the move from Canberra Raiders last year having missed his last year through injury.

St Helens have targeted Warrington’s Daryl Clark for 2024 as his replacement and are now set to replace Lussick with Mbye.

The Daily Telegraph in Australia reported yesterday that Lussick has begun negotiations with the Eels for an immediate move which will also include a contract for the 2024 season as well.

They reported:

“Eels officials are in negotiations to bring Australian schoolboys hooker Joey Lussick back to the club.

“Parramatta powerbrokers are hoping to strike a deal within the next 72 hours. The offer would also include a contract for 2024.

“Lussick, 27, played nine NRL games with the Eels in 2021 before signing with the English Super League giants, St Helens.

“His familiarity with the Eels system, the players and the coaching staff is a major lure for Parramatta to try and drop Lussick immediately back into the club’s first grade side.”
