Super League target pursued by new club

There are a few Super League clubs who could be interested in NRL halfbacks right now including the likes of Wigan Warriors and Leeds Rhinos.

Wigan appear to be in the market for a stand-off with Cade Cust switching to hooker whilst Leeds Rhinos have yet to tie down Blake Austin and Aidan Sezer with the former Warrington Wolves and Huddersfield Giants men out of contract at the end of the year.

In recent times we’ve seen teams hit the jackpot with NRL halfbacks such as Jake Clifford at Hull FC, Man of Steel Brodie Croft at Salford Red Devils and Lachlan Lam at Leigh Leopards.

Thus, it’ll be interesting to see if there is any new interest in Kyle Flanagan.

Kyle Flanagan could have be a Super League player right now.

There have always been rumours that Flanagan could move to Super League. The Canterbury Bulldogs halfback had been tipped to join Leeds Rhinos last year.

This came when Leeds Chief Executive Gary Hetherington was in Australia looking for a new coach and it was reported he was considering a move for Flanagan and his father Shane who coached Cronulla Sharks to the NRL title in 2016.

This of course never happened with Hetherington appointing Rohan Smith instead.

Then there were rumours linking Flanagan to Hull FC after Josh Reynolds’ departure who is ironically back at the Bulldogs alongside Flanagan.

Again, this never happened. But according to the Sydney Morning Herald, Flanagan had a move to a Super League club lined up but rejected the chance to move to England.

His advisor Wayne Beavis found Flanagan an English club according to the Herald but Flanagan back flipped on the move to stay at Canterbury in the hope he could cement the number seven shirt.

Nonetheless, he didn’t make the move to England but is still expected to leave the Bulldogs as he enters the final year of his deal and can negotiate with other clubs and according to the Reports he is set to use his father’s links to get a move potentially to St George Illawarra Dragons or Manly Sea Eagles.

Shane Flanagan is now in charge of the Dragons and a family reunion could be on the cards.

He has recently been playing hooker for the Bulldogs.
