World Cup star open to Super League move following lovely try in Round One and after cousin’s move to Huddersfield Giants

During a World Cup, there is always talk surrounding the available players as they put themselves in the shop window.

One man certainly did that on Wednesday night with a lovely try.

After his cousin Esan has stolen the show with a break and assist for Anthony Gelling to score for Cook Islands as they beat a resilient Wales side, Steven Marsters stepped up with the winning try taking a Brad Takairangi kick masterfully and putting the ball down as he fell to the ground.

Marsters however doesn’t know where his future lies as he revealed when speaking to the Daily Telegraph after the game.

However, he is open to a Super League move and following in the footsteps of his cousin Esan who will join Huddersfield Giants in 2023 and certainly impressed in the halves on Wednesday in the 18-12 win despite being a centre by trade.

On his future, Steven Marsters told the Daily Telegraph: “I am not too sure [what I am doing next year] just yet, we’re playing it by ear.

“With the World Cup happening, maybe I can play well and earn a spot over here [in the Super League] or maybe there‘s an NRL club looking for players to get amongst it.

“A majority of players we have here are trying to get themselves into a top 30 [squad] and get into a better position in their careers, so this is a good chance to showcase what we‘re about.”

Marsters is not even 23 and has huge potential so would be a handy signing for any Super League side especially one looking for an outside back.
