Tee Ritson sends out message ahead of proposed Super League move

If ever there was a Championship high flyer that would settle in seamlessly in Super League then it is Barrow Raiders star Tee Ritson.

Having been linked with a move to the top flight earlier in the season following a number of eye-catching displays, speculation seems to have died down since then.

Yet, Ritson is still playing at the top of his game with his superb performance at the weekend against Whitehaven cementing his place as one of the most exciting players outside of Super League.

The Thai international winger scored two tries to add to his already burgeoning tally as the Raiders put Widnes to the sword in an emphatic 40-6 win as Barrow continue to defy expectations in the second tier.

Ritson’s second was particularly impressive with the winger flying in at the corner in acrobatic fashion as the Rugby Football League (RFL) posted on their Instagram page for an impressive ‘Try of the Week’ compilation.

The Raiders currently sit in sixth in the Championship with 11 wins from 18 games, totally blowing predictions out of the water that the Cumbrian side would be in relegation trouble.

With a superb try-scoring pedigree, electric pace and skills that definitely would not look out of place in Super League, Ritson has been a major part of that and is touted for a big move.

Could Ritson be the next star to move from the Championship to Super League and follow in the footsteps of the likes of Alex Walmsley and Chris Hill and take the top flight by storm?

The 26-year-old signed a three-year deal with Barrow back in the summer of 2021, but the club would likely not begrudge a move to Super League.
