Two clubs drop out of the race for English superstar

Ex-Huddersfield Giants star and England international Dom Young’s future is not yet decided.

That’s despite the fact Newcastle Knights are very keen on locking in the youngster with the other signings the Knights have made from England in the shape of Will Pryce and Wigan Warriors star Kai Pearce-Paul as well as new assistant coach and former Leeds Rhinos boss Brian McDermott hopefully key to keeping him at the club.

However, two can play at that game and South Sydney Rabbitohs turned to assistant coach and legendary English player Sam Burgess to tempt him to the club with it being reported that he has held meetings with Young over a potential move.

After this Serious About Rugby League reported that Young and his management met with other clubs since then with his contract set to end in 2024 allowing any and all clubs to make a move for him if they so wish.

In fact last week former Super League coach Trent Robinson has “dined” the young English winger according to the Daily Telegraph as Sydney Roosters enter the race to sign the promising youngster.

This is interesting news given Sydney’s reported interest in young Wakefield Trinity winger Lewis Murphy.

As the Roosters enter the race, Serious About Rugby League understands that Young is close to a decision which could be made soon potentially within the week.

However, now two of his options are now out of the question with the Daily Telegraph reporting today that Souths and the Canterbury Bulldogs have pulled out of the race for Young.

Nonetheless Young’s ultimate goal is to determine his future at least before the start of the NRL season which kickstarts on the 2nd of March.

So, with less than a month to go, Young’s future will surely be settled sooner rather than later.

The Knights are involved in the second game of the season.

After Parramatta and Melbourne collide on the Thursday night, the Knights over in New Zealand to clash with the Warriors on the 3rd.

By then we should know what the future holds for the English winger.
