Richie Myler heading to Leeds in 2018?
Richie Myler could be heading back to England after his spell with the Catalan Dragons, and the Leeds Rhinos could be his next destination, according to Rugby League pundit Garry Schofield.
Big rumours of Leeds signing Richie Myler. Surely not! I’m 52 in July and would do a better job.

The Rhinos are looking for replacements for Danny McGuire and Rob Burrow, and 27-year old Myler may be the man to fill the gap. The former Warrington and Salford man is uncertain about his future at the Dragons following their recent poor form.
Jonny Lomax set for Saints departure?
Johnny Lomax may depart Saints at the end of the season, according to Love Rugby League.
New coach Justin Holbrook is likely to have a clear out at the end of the season as he begins to shape the squad to his own suiting, and with the arrival of Ben Barba at the club, Lomax’s position at full-back could be at risk.
Steve McNamara set to be named Catalans head coach
Former England boss Steve McNamara is set to be named the new head coach of the Catalan Dragons, according to the Hull Daily Mail.
The Dragons are said to have been keen on Warrington boss Tony Smith, but with the Aussie showing no sign of leaving just yet, their attention has turned to McNamara.
Catalans have been without a coach since Laurent Frayssinous left the club last month.
McNamara is currently with the New Zeland Warriors as an assistant and his appointment is expected in the next few weeks.
Naughton heading back to Australia
Hull FC winger Curtis Naughton could be heading back to Australia, according to reports. The 22-year old former Bradford and Sydney Roosters man has spent this season out on loan at the Leigh Centurions.
However, Naughton is set to return to Australia on compassionate grounds in the coming weeks, and will depart the Black & Whites on a permanent basis.
I understand #HullFC winger Curtis Naughton has had contract offers from Wests Tigers and Newcastle Knights in NRL. No decision made yet.
