Could Super League star be set for retirement as huge move confirmed

Leeds Rhinos, Wigan Warriors, Warrington Wolves, Hull FC and Hull KR have all announced major NRL signings for the 2024 season and now Huddersfield Giants are going to get into the act.

The Giants will lose Theo Fages and Will Pryce at the end of the year and the futures of Jermaine McGillvary and Chris McQueen are uncertain.

But one transfer could have secured one of their futures going forward. Chris McQueen has been considering retirement and it seems the Giants could have secured a replacement.

Jack Murchie has signed with Huddersfield on a three-year contract from next season.

Murchie will be released from the final 12 months of his Parramatta contract to join the Super League.

Murchie, 26, has played just five games for the Eels this year after signing for the club from the Warriors. He has not been seen in the top grade since round six.

He is set to be joined by an NRL halfback too.

Despite reported interest from Hull FC and Leeds Rhinos, it is the Giants who have swooped in and signed Newcastle Knights halfback Adam Clune for the 2024 campaign.

This move has been confirmed by The Mole of Wide World of Sports.

According to the Mole he has signed a long term deal with the Giants.

The Giants are set to lose Theo Fages to Catalans Dragons. The former Salford Red Devils and St Helens star joined the club ahead of 2022 but has struggled through injuries during his career at the John Smith’s Stadium.

He is now set to return to France to play for Catalans Dragons and replace the departing Mitchell Pearce and Tyrone May ahead of the 2024 season.

Clune is set to be Fages’ replacement with it appearing that Murchie will be McQueen’s replacement suggesting that he could be about to retire.

He made his 250th appearance last week against Leeds Rhinos as his shirt paid homage to Kyle Turner.

The South Sydney Rabbitohs star Turner sadly passed away recently to the shock of the rugby league world.

He won an NRL with the Bunnies alongside the Burgess brothers back in 2014 and McQueen was a good friend.
