Super League target in negotiations over new deal

Daniel Tupou has previously been linked with St Helens

Daniel Tupou is one of the best wingers on the planet.

He is an NRL winner and shone in the World Cup for Tonga.

A huge, tall and powerful winger, he is a dangerous force on the flank and has been a consistent performer in the NRL.

However, it was recently reported that he could be headed to Super League or rugby union.

Tupou was set to have a huge decision on his hands as the Roosters strengthen their backline.

According to the Sydney Morning Herald, the winger was set to consider “a big money move to Super League.”

They stated: “Daniel Tupou will soon have to decide whether to remain at the Sydney Roosters – and complete the tallest, most intimidating back line in the NRL – or entertain a big-money move to the Super League or Japanese Rugby.”

This all came of course after the news about Dom Young.

The England winger agreed to join the Roosters for 2024 raising question marks about Tupou’s future.

He’ll join England teammate, Victor Radley, providing that the loose forward also extends his stay in Sydney given he is also out of contract for 2024 and beyond at present.

Meanwhile, the Roosters have been interested in Wakefield Trinity winger Lewis Murphy too only raising further questions over Tupou and making a Super League move more likely with the Mole of Wide World of Sports reporting that clubs were monitoring him whilst Mike Rush of St Helens told sources down under that they would be interested in a player of his calibre.

However, now that star outside back Joseph Suaali’i is headed for rugby union in 2025, it seems Tupou is likely to be resigned by the Roosters with the Daily Telegraph’s David Riccio saying on Triple M Radio that negotiations have begun.
