Surprise Oliver Gildart decision made

Oliver Gildart is headed back to Super League.

The centre started his career at Wigan Warriors. He made his break out year in 2015 which concluded in a first Grand Final appearance.

Since then the centre has played in three more claiming two wins over Warrington Wolves in 2016 and 2018.

He has also played at Wembley in 2017 in the Challenge Cup Final.

At the end of 2021, the centre, who has starred for England in the past scoring a sensational try against New Zealand in 2018, left for the NRL but it didn’t quite work out at Wests Tigers.

There was then interest from Leeds Rhinos to bring him in until the end of 2022 but he ended up on a similar deal at Sydney Roosters.

Then going into 2023 his future was unclear but he went on to sign for the new boys in the NRL The Dolphins but hasn’t played for them once in 2023 and now the centre is headed to Hull KR next year in another major signing for the Robins.

Surprisingly, last weekend Gildart was included in the Dolphins’ squad for the first time in 2023.

Yet again, Gildart finds himself in the squad this week as he moves up the pecking order somewhat.

There has been suggestions from some Hull KR fans that the club should attempt to get him over for the rest of 2023 and being kept in the squad at number 22 will do little to deter this.

However, if Gildart gets some game time in the NRL it could be a strong last hoorah.
