NRL Grand Finalist Aidan Sezar is on his way to Super League, says League Weekly’s Dave Parker. The Canberra half has reportedly signed a three-year deal with Huddersfield, after having been linked to the club earlier in the year. Parker writes: “Sezar, who was two months ago said to be on Leeds Rhinos’ radar and more recently Brisbane Broncos, is said to have completed a three-year deal with Giants coach Simon Woolford to move to West Yorkshire late next month for pre-season training.”
Hull KR are set to offer a new deal to former Dewsbury man Kyle Trout. The back rower joined Rovers late in the season and helped them stave off relegation. And he could now be set for an extended stay at Craven Park, according to the Hull Daily Mail’s Jame O’Brien.
Reports across the Channel claim Tony Gigot could switch codes to play union in France. Gigot has been linked with a move to the NRL since his departure from Catalans was announced, but Treize Mondial report there is interest from Top 14 side Toulon and that the full-back has indicated he’d be open to a move.
Greg Minikin will be a Hull KR player from next season, according to the Hull Daily Mail’s James O’Brien. Castleford winger Minikin is believed to have already signed a deal with the Robins. O’Brien writes: “The Robins secured the services of the outside back midway through the season as they reshape their squad for next year and beyond. There has been widespread talk that Rovers were going cold on the deal but he remains very much in the club’s plans.”
