This is old news about the bidding war.

However given the credibility of the Courier Mail, which is owned by Rupert Murdoch, who also owns Sky, it does sound as though Gareth Widdop wants to come to Super League.

You are wrong. He would earn more money by staying in sunny Australia.

Not necessarily, and there's not SoO or playing for Australia to keep him in Oz.

Meh, stories of Widdop wanting to come to SL are nothing new, before he signed a new 4 year deal in 2017 their were similar stories. Think that was and is now more a move to get better money over there in Australia. Can see him coming over at some point but not next season. Even if he does I don’t buy the story in that article saying he’s signing a 2 year deal.....if he comes he’ll be on a marquee deal and money and want a 4 year deal.

Still not 100% convinced on his ‘return’. Surely more to achieve for him in NRL?






What would a Cockney know about rugby league?
