When you look at the second-rowers over there he'd be up against; Kikau, Nani and all the rest,it's a big ask.

Seconded. Can anyone give me just one example bar, probably Ellis and Morley who went over to Aus and came back better or as good?

I left my job once for more money (same industry) and i hated it. The people and the way they worked. I went back to my old job within 2 months and have never looked at another job since. I didn't have agents or advisors either. I made a judgement based solely on money. Enjoy your Huddersfield career Harry. See you at Leigh in 2025.



Cooper has done ok since coming back

There does seem to be an assumption that all players go to the NRL for the money but I’m not sure that’s always the case.

The opportunity to live a different lifestyle and to gain the experience of testing yourself in the NRL must also be a factor.

The advantage of going when you are young also means you are likely to be free and single without having to relocate a family.

A 3 year deal with Huddersfield sounds pretty good to me.

The flipside may be that you've not developed fully as a player to give yourself the best chance of making it. You also have just reached adulthood so may not have the maturity or resilience to cope with being so far away from family/friends.

Cooper came back to the UK, a better player than he was before he played in the NRL.

I can only think of one player who went over there and played out his full RL career - Sam Burgess. Everyone else has come back at some point - many after not all that long.

I suspect KPP will make it big over there and be an NRL player long term but he's definitely someone I'd hope we have 'first option' on (almost a Wigan trademark now).


The only one who seems to have broken the Wigan mould is Ryan Sutton. Regular performer, rave reviews and seems settled over there.

Yep, it’s ultimately down to personal choice but I find it strange when people criticise young players for having a go, especially when they have no idea of the contract details or the persons personal circumstances.

I think I remember Kris R saying that the club didn't even start negotiations with Sutton as he was so sure he wanted to go to Australia.
