Super League Transfer News: Samoan International Forward Hits the Market

Super League Clubs on High Alert as Samoan International Forward Enters the Market

In a busy week of mid-season transfer activity, Super League clubs have been taking advantage of the break in the Challenge Cup schedule to bolster their rosters. Among the notable moves, a Samoan international forward has become available, potentially sparking interest from several teams.

Hull FC have been the Super League’s busiest side this week, announcing the signings of Jordan Abdull for 2025 and adding Jed Cartwright, son of incoming coach John, and Treigh Stweard, who will join the Black and Whites for the remainder of the 2024 season. Additionally, reports suggest that Ed Chamberlain will soon be joining FC for 2025, while Liam Sutcliffe departs for the Huddersfield Giants.

Across town, Hull KR have captured the signature of Tom Davies from the Catalans Dragons for the 2025 season.

Overnight, news broke that the Brisbane Broncos are willing to release one of their marquee players, Martin Taupau, who has long been linked with a move to the Super League. The 34-year-old forward, capped internationally by New Zealand and Samoa, has been a consistent performer in the NRL over the years. According to Fox League, Taupau has been informed that he will not be re-signed beyond his current deal, which expires at the end of the 2024 season.

“Taupau’s potential availability is sure to pique the interest of a number of Super League clubs, particularly the Leeds Rhinos, who have been repeatedly mentioned as a potential destination for the experienced forward throughout his career. With the Rhinos’ pack in need of additional go-forward, this could be the ideal opportunity for Taupau to finally make the switch to the northern hemisphere.”
