Super League side still keen on brilliant halfback

There is always plenty of transfer talk around this stage of a Super League season and that is again true in 2023 as you would expect.

One recent focus has been the future of Leeds Rhinos star Blake Austin after he ripped Huddersfield Giants to shreds on Friday night/

This week Austin is set to take on his former club.

The Leeds Rhinos halfback will be taking on the club who brought him to England in the place back in 2019 in the shape of Warrington Wolves.

The halfback left Warrington for Leeds Rhinos at the end of the 2021 season taking on the number six shirt helping take the Rhinos to Old Trafford in 2022.

Despite losing, though he did nail a brilliant 40/20 in the final, he vowed to win at Old Trafford during his career.

Austin has been in great form in 2023 with 15 assists this season and he notched two sensational assists against Huddersfield Giants last week.

Granted he struggled against Wakefield Trinity the game before in the story of his season.

That is because Austin has been inconsistent in 2023 though he was brilliant in games against St Helens and Catalans Dragons.

That said, according to Leeds Live, Austin could be headed to pastures new in Super League with the halfback talking to Super League clubs after not agreeing a deal with the club.

Rohan Smith addressed these reports confirmed that Austin has the opportunity to consider options elsewhere but is still in the club’s thoughts:

“That’s a two-way street, you know, like every negotiation. Blake has the opportunity to see what else is out there, but he’s also still in our thoughts.”

So, this story is very much incomplete at this current moment in time.

Time will tell whether Austin remains at Headingley or if he heads to pastures new.
