Three Super League clubs world class NRL youngster could join

One of the big stories today centres around one of the most exciting youngsters in the sport, Karl Oloapu.

The young stand-off signed a three-year deal at Brisbane Broncos and is one of the most exciting young players around at the moment. He captained the Australian Schoolboys, which is as big an accolade that any player can achieve in their teenage years. He was also crowned the player of the tournament in the recent under 18s competition.

However, his future is up in the air due to what The Mole of The Wide World of Sports described as “broken promises.” According to The Mole, this has him and his agent former Leeds Rhinos man Matt Adamson considering a move to rugby union or indeed Super League. If he were to come to Super League it would be one of the biggest coups in the competition history as one of the world’s best youngsters leaves behind the NRL for the English equivalent.

Speaking exclusively to Serious About Rugby League, Adamson revealed that they have already spoken to two Super League clubs about a potential move for the young stand-off.

But who could these teams be?

Leeds Rhinos
Matt Adamson still has a great connection with the Rhinos and loves the club. Speaking to Serious About Rugby League, he revealed he is often in contact with Chief Executive Gary Hetherington and even helped Hetherington decide that Rohan Smith was the right man to coach Leeds. When asked if Leeds were one of the clubs they’d already spoken to, Adamson said “I’m sure Rohan Smith knows the kid as Norths Devils coach previous.” The move is possible with a quota spot open at Headingley and with Blake Austin and Aidan Sezer both in the last year of their deals. He and young Jack Sinfield could be the halfback pairing of the future at Headingley.

Catalans Dragons
Like Leeds, Adamson has good connections at Catalans having coached there in the past. The Dragons are looking to move on current halfback Josh Drinkwater and have quota spots open. The nice weather over in France would also be a major selling point.

Warrington Wolves
Warrington are in the market for a halfback and could make a move for Drinkwater but failing that perhaps this signing would work for Daryl Powell. Alongside Riley Dean and Leon Hayes, they would have terrific halfback options moving forward.
