Unwanted Canterbury forward chooses his next destination after offers from three Super League clubs

Unwanted Canterbury Bulldogs forward Dylan Napa has chosen his next club after a number of offers from Super League sides.

It had been reported weeks ago that Leeds Rhinos, Hull KR and Catalans Dragons had offered the prop a Super League lifeline.

The rampaging forward won a Grand Final with the Sydney Roosters back in 2018, but left for Canterbury in 2019 where his career has somewhat stagnated to the point at which the Bulldogs told him that they wouldn’t be retaining him following the culmination of the 2021 NRL season.

And, now, according to L’Independant, Napa will move to the Dragons in the south of France, following Mitchell Pearce from the NRL to become the latest high-profile recruit in Perpignan.

A move to the south of France means that the 28-year-old would be reunited with head coach Steve McNamara, who he worked with at Sydney when McNamara was assistant coach to another former Dragons boss, Trent Robinson.

Leeds was perhaps the most unlikely destination, given that the Rhinos already have their seven quota spaces full, with David Fusitu’a, Rhyse Martin, Aidan Sezer, Blake Austin, Zane Tetevano, Matt Prior and Bodene Thompson, so it remains to be seen where Napa would. have fit into the equation at Headingley.
