Super League giants address potential interest in NRL star

NRL halfback Chad Townsend is being shopped around to Super League clubs according to the Daily Telegraph’s Phil Rothfield.

This comes as the Cowboys are set to move for Leeds Rhinos target Luke Brooks.

“I think it was a statement recruitment decision that they’re never going to overpay a footballer again and they won’t budge off $550,000 for Brooks and I applaud them for that,” Rothfield said on NRL 360.

“The mail I have is that Luke Brooks is very likely to finish up at the North Queensland Cowboys, he played Holden Cup in a premiership winning side with Todd Payten a while back, they’re very, very tight.

“There’s a lot of mail now that Chad Townsend is being shopped around to English Super League clubs and a couple of NRL clubs in Sydney as well.”

With Leeds set to miss out on Brooks, could they move for Townsend.

A move to Super League for 32-year-old is really on the cards.

However, Leeds boss Rohan Smith was coy about any possibility that they could sign Townsend.

“Chad’s a terrific player and person,” Smith said when asked if Leeds would be interested.

“I’ve had a little bit to do with him a long time ago when I was at the New Zealand Warriors when he was there.

“He’s had a terrific career, but that’s as far as I can comment on that situation.”
