Brodie Croft has ‘NRL aspirations’ as agent outlines Leeds Rhinos contract detail

The agent of Brodie Croft has admitted that the Leeds Rhinos halfback would like to return to the NRL at some point in his career. It comes at a time when a number of NRL clubs, including Gold Coast Titans, are looking for halfbacks.

The Australian joined the Rhinos in the off-season after a successful two-year stint at Salford, where he won the Man of Steel in his first season. He signed a three-year contract at Headingley in the off-season, one that was known to have an NRL release clause.

But his agent, Chris Orr, has now confirmed that there are NRL options in his contract every year, giving him the flexibility to leave the Super League club at stages during his contract.

It comes at a time when the Titans are looking at halfback options, with current playmaker Tannah Boyd struggling for form.

“Brodie went to the Super League where he has regained his running game and become one of the most lethal runners in the competition,” Orr told the Herald Sun.

“He’s won the Man of Steel and could win it again this year. He is playing his best football. He’s switched clubs (from Salford to Leeds) and doing a really good job for the Rhinos. His coach Rohan Smith has been rapping him to me and says he’s been a fantastic acquisition as a player and person.

“Brodie absolutely has NRL aspirations and has got NRL options in his contract every year. When you look at the best halfbacks in the game – and take Nathan Cleary out – they are over 30 these days. Brodie is entering the matured part of his career.”

Despite Leeds’ indifferent start to the season, Croft is currently the leading assister in the league, producing nine in seven games.
