Leigh and Wire chasing Hardaker for 2017.
Zak Hardaker is being linked with two further clubs for 2017, in Warrington and Leigh. The full-back has previously been linked to Hull KR.
The League Express is today reporting that no interested parties have discusses formal terms with Hardaker, but the £300,000 transfer fee will be a major obstacle to overcome for clubs. The Centurions announced their first major signing last night, signing former Aussie international Glenn Stewart on a 2-year deal.
Meanwhile, Dave ‘Nosey’ Parker reports in League Weekly that Warrington are strongly linked with the player. He claims the Wolves re the favourites given their stature and the room they will have on the salary cap when Ryan Atkins and Kevin Penny leave.
Williams move back on for Wakefield.
After seeming to collapse last week, it has now emerged in the League Express that a move for Raiders half-back Sam Williams is back on. Williams, who spent the 2014 season with the Catalan Dragons has failed to break into the Canberra side, and is looking to further his career in the UK.
Wakefield have already announced the signings of Mason Caton-Brown, Scott Grix and Keegan Hirst for 2017, with Michael Carter mentioning on BBC Radio Leeds that their could be a possible four more new faces.
Todd Carney and Dave Taylor heading for East Hull?
Hull KR are preparing to spend big money this off season. With Albert Kelly shown the exit door and the likes of Ken Sio also set to depart, they will have ample room on the wage cap to make some ambitious signings; none more so than Todd Carney and Dave Taylor from the Catalan Dragons.
Carney has been linked with a move back to the NRL with St George said to be keen on his signature, but the Robins are looking to keep the player in Super League. The 30-year old has fallen out with staff in Perpignan due to off-field behaviour.
The 18th Man understands that Hull KR are also interested in bringing big Aussie Dave Taylor to the Lightstream Stadium. Taylor is another of a whole plethora of faces on the way out of the Dragons, and Rovers may be his destination in 2017. Should Taylor return to the NRL, he faces a trial in a drugs related incident.
