Super League set to lose another young star as Sydney Roosters target England Knights winger

Super League is already set to lose Will Pryce and Kai Pearce-Paul to the NRL in 2024 but another name could be added to that list of young talents leaving the English game.

Lewis Murphy is the latest young star that could be set for a move with reports from Australia suggesting that the Sydney Roosters are making a play for him.

The Daily Telegraph are reporting that a two-year deal is on the the table and will be effective from 2024, meaning Super League could lose a third youngster in that same transfer window.

Murphy is just 20 year’s old but he had a breakout first season in Super League with a four-try haul against St Helens being the game that truly announced him as the next potential superstar.

The Telegraph report that whilst a deal is yet to be signed it is expected and it’s no surprised that the talented winger has caught the attention of the NRL given his 19 tries in 21 games.

He would join England international Victor Radley at the Roosters and would be set to face off against young English trio Pryce, Pearce-Paul and Dom Young who will all play for Newcastle Knights in the 2024 season, providing Young stays.

This comes just days after Jackson Hastings told James Graham’s podcast that Super League could see an exodus of young talent, as reported here.
