The Rugby League World Cup was home to some of the best players on the planet at present.
We got to see “generational talent” Joseph Suaali’i, Golden Boot winner Joey Manu and of course perhaps the world’s best player at present, Penrith Panthers halfback Nathan Cleary.
However, it is easy to get swept up in the magic of these attacking backs and forget about the world class forwards on show.
However, one prop in the Rugby League World Cup really caught the eye: Nelson Asofa-Solomona.
Of the Melbourne Storm, he starred brilliantly for Michael Maguire, formerly of Wigan Warriors, and his Kiwi side who were unlucky to come up short in a classic semi-final against Australia at Elland Road.
This came after Asofa-Solomona had helped rip Leeds Rhinos to shreds in their warm up game at Headingley.
Now though, the star forward could be set for what reports down under are describing as “a shock move.”
This comes as the Daily Telegraph report that Canterbury Bulldogs are keen on luring the big unit to Belmore alongside star halfback Mitchell Moses and centre turned fullback Stephen Crichton to spark their hopes of Premiership glory into life.
Though the Bulldogs’ interest hasn’t been officially recorded, the Daily Telegraph is expecting them to make a move soon for 2024.
