Michael Gordon Could Extend his Career in Super League in 2018

Michael Gordon’s stay at Bondi could be short lived and is open to a move to English Super League to Extend his Rugby League Career.

Gordon, 33, made the switch from the Parramatta Eels to the Sydney Roosters at the end of the 2016 season, signing a 1-year deal with the Roosters.


Reports suggest the Sydney Roosters have tabled Wests Tigers star, James Tedesco, a 5-year $6 million deal, which Tedesco will find hard to turn down.

If Tedesco accepts the Roosters offer, which is believed he will, then Gordon’s services at Bondi will no longer be required.

Gordon has started well for the Roosters in the No.1 jersey, making all 6 apperances so far and scoring 4 tries for his new club. His strong opening to the season will help his market value when negoiating for a new contact with a potential club.


Gordon believed to be open to a move to England to play in the Super English League to extend his playing career. It is understood that Gordon has always had a desire to try his art out in the English completition and the time might be now to do so.

There should be no shortage of Super League teams that would be cirling for Gordon’s signature, as he can play at fullback or on the wing and would be a handy purchase for any potential team.

Gordon has played 209 NRL games scoring 82 tries, and kicking over 500 goals (539), since making his debut for the Panthers in round 8 of the 2006 NRL season against the Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks at Penrith Stadium.
