2023 is a week old as of today but there are still players who are not sure where they will play this season.
In fact there are over 20 players down under who are still looking for a club in 2023 which leaves the door open for Super League and Championship clubs to potentially make a move.
One of the players in this position is former Penrith Panthers halfback Kurt Falls who has been an understudy for perhaps the world’s best player Nathan Cleary until Huddersfield Giants’ Jack Cogger moved to the Panthers as his replacement.
So, now Falls could be headed to Super League or the Championship.
If that happens, which clubs could move for the halfback?
Catalans want to make two signings ahead of the new Super League season in the shape of a prop after they lost Dylan Napa and have missed out on former Warrington Wolves and Salford Red Devils man Ben Murdoch-Masila. But they also want a centre having missed out on Featherstone Rovers’ Joey Leilua after letting Samisoni Langi head to Wakefield Trinity. However, if they moved Tyrone May to the centres, they could sign a halfback instead and Falls would therefore be a smart signing.
Bulls boss Mark Dunning has confirmed that they are still talking to potential transfer targets ahead of the new season. So, they’re still looking to add depth to their side and therefore could turn to Falls.
Halifax are in a similar boat especially as they only have 24 players in their squad at present. Their halfbacks are very settled including ex-Hull KR Joe Keyes. However, you always need cover in this area and thus Falls would be a smart signing.
