Young NRL players makes surprise move to France

The Elite One Championship has recently been home to some huge rugby league names.

Last year Krisnan Inu, having left Salford Red Devils spent time in the French competition prior to a move to Leigh Leopards.

Meanwhile, Nathan Peats did the same following his exit from Huddersfield Giants and before he made a return to Super League with Toulouse Olympique.

He is now set to return to the Giants as Inu is set to take on a coaching role at Salford.

Meanwhile, James Maloney continues to shine at Lazignan and has been joined by former Toulouse and NRL star Corey Norman.

Former Catalans Dragons, Wigan Warriors, Wakefield Trinity and Salford Red Devils star Morgan Escare made a similar move and Elite One clubs made a move for Wakefield Trinity signing Samisoni Langi before he chose to join Belle Vue.

Now Limoux have pulled of the latest major coup of the competition signing Zac Saddler.

An exciting young NRL star, he has made three appearances in the competition for Manly Sea Eagles and even represented the Indigenous All Stars in 2021 – a major honour.

However, he will now ply his trade in France and don’t be surprised to see a club like Catalans sniffing around before long with the young second-row having plenty of potential.
