Ex-Huddersfield Giants man Dom Young is the most in demand star of the NRL after his exploits with England in the Rugby League World Cup.
The former Huddersfield Giants man stirred up talk about his quality when he devastated Fiji in Shaun Wane’s warm-up clash prior to signing a world class brace against Samoa in the opening game of the tournament.
On the back of a superb NRL season as he scored tries for fun for Newcastle Knights after a season developing in 2021, this shot Young into the headlines.
There was plenty of interest in Young before this, but this exponentially increased as he shone in the World Cup scoring four tries in 40 minutes against Greece after a 100 metre try against France.
Serious About Rugby League previously revealed that the likes of The Dolphins, Melbourne Storm and the Canberra Raiders had an interest in him alongside five Sydney based clubs.
On November 1st, he entered the last 12 months of his current deal allowing other clubs to negotiate with him.
However, according to the Newcastle Herald, his current club the Newcastle Knights have begun talks to try and keep him at the club.
However, Serious About Rugby League understands that no decision has been made yet.
In fact, it is unlikely to be decided any time soon.
That’s because Young won’t be back until 28th December. This could therefore delay any decision until after Christmas.
Making a decision will be made harder with the Daily Telegraph revealing that he is the most in demand player in the NRL right now ahead of the likes of Mitchell Moses and Dylan Brown as thy revealed Sydney Roosters, South Sydney Rabbitohs, Cronulla and others are interested in him.
In fact they claim that up to nine clubs are chasing him.
However, Serious About Rugby League can confirm that none of these are Super League clubs. In fact, there hasn’t been a concrete interest in Young from Super League since he moved over to Australia in 2021.
This is partly because Young is now entrenched in the NRL. A bright star of a competition equipped with bigger pay packets, and in the eyes of many the elite competition, it would be difficult for any Super League club to lure him back to England.
In fact, Serious About Rugby League can confirm that Young is not presently interested in a return to Super League believing he has much more to achieve in the NRL.
