Paul Gallen is set to call the 2017 season his last in the NRL and wants to play in the Super League in 2018.
Gallen, 35, lead his beloved Cronulla Sharks to their first NRL premiership in 2016, defeating the Melbourne Storm in a cliffhanger.
The Australian International and NSW State of Origin captain is expected to call it quits on his NRL career at the end of the 2017 season and has hinted at that he has a desire to play on in the English Super League.
“As I’ve said before I wouldn’t mind going to an English Super League club for a season, but I’ll see how I am in 12 months’ time and I’ll decide what my future is then.”
Wakefield Trinity has been linked with a Gallen move and is leading the pack for his services. St Helens, Leeds and Wigan will all come in contention with Gallen wanting to win Championships.
The Wildcard choice is to reunite with former Australian Coach Tim Sheens, if the Rovers gain promotion back into Super League next season.
Gallen has made 281 appearances for the Cronulla Sharks and has represented Australian on 32 occasions and New South Wales 24 occasions.
