Super League club reportedly chasing Featherstone Rovers star

This time last year there was plenty of buzz around Featherstone Rovers and their transfer business.

They signed former Leeds Rhinos star Adam Cuthbertson and NRL halfback Ryley Jacks.

This came after they signed former Castleford Tigers forward and Super League Grand Finalists Jesse-Sene Lefao and their biggest signing of the winter former NRL Grand Finalist and Canberra Raiders and Wests Tigers star Joey Leilua in a move that shocked many and had fans believing that Featherstone were favourites for promotion in 2022.

In the end that didn’t happen and now Leilua is reportedly being chased by a Super League club.

This comes from French publication L’Independant who are reporting that Leilua, along with former Warrington Wolves and Salford Red Devils prop Ben Murdoch-Masila.

The Dragons have quota spots available after the recent departures of Josh Drinkwater to Warrington Wolves, Samisoni Langi to Wakefield Trinity, Dean Whare to the Elite One Championship and the release of Dylan Napa yesterday.

They’ve signed Adam Keirghan to replace one of the centres and Leilua could fill the other hole there with Tyrone May set to replace Drinkwater in the halves.

Murdoch-Masila meanwhile would replace Napa at prop.

The Dragons are the only Super League side with plenty of recruiting left to do.

Wakefield Trinity could very well make another signing as Serious About Rugby League understands the original plan was to make five signings and have only made four.

Leigh Leopards meanwhile have a quota spot open.
