Super League clubs keeping tabs on NRL trio including Wests Tigers star Thomas Mikaele

Super League clubs are said to be keeping tabs on an NRL trio.

With clubs determined to build formidable squads for 2023 and beyond, a number of stars have come into Super League clubs’ sights.

Three of those are Gold Coast Titans’ Jarrod Wallace, Wests Tigers’ Thomas Mikaele and Manly Sea Eagles forward Martin Taupau, according to the Daily Telegraph.

Wallace has played all of his NRL career so far in Queensland, starting out his time in the game at Brisbane Broncos where he registered 74 appearances.

The 30-year-old prop made the move to the Gold Coast Titans in 2017 and has notched up a further 104 appearances, with six caps for Queensland at State of Origin level.

Meanwhile, Wests’ Thomas Mikaele has been at Concord his whole career so far and, at just 24 years of age, has already 66 appearances under his belt.

Whilst youth is on the side of Mikaele, the same cannot be said of the last name listed in Taupau.

The hulking Manly forward has been linked with Super League move before but he now looks destined to end his affiliation with the Sea Eagles after seven seasons and almost 150 appearances later.

Taupau began his career at Canterbury Bulldogs before a move to Wests in 2014 shot his reputation through the roof.
