Kyle Flanagan has spoken out against rumours that he is heading to Super League if things don’t work out at Canterbury.
Having been dropped by head coach Trent Barrett following Canterbury’s eight losses from nine games at the beginning of 2021, Flanagan was recalled against Manly. However, that 66-0 loss resulted in him being forced out of the side once more.
Despite that, the halfback is on course to return for the Bulldogs at the weekend.
“I feel like I’m making my debut on the weekend,” he told the Canberra Times.
“It’s probably been the hardest part of my career and definitely a learning curve, but I got a lot out of it and I’m quite a positive person.
Flanagan denied speculation linking him with a move to Super League after reports circulated that he had been offered to northern hemisphere clubs.
“I just have to go out there and enjoy my footy,” he said.
“I’ve been treating that (training) like a game, take the mouth guard and put the pads on and really treat it like a game.”
“Sometimes we can over complicate things quite a bit.”
