We doubt anything will come of it, but SMH have reported that the Roosters are also interested in off-contract Warriors second-rower Ryan Hoffman, in the event that he decides not to join the Storm.
According to the report, the Roosters have expressed their interest to Hoffman, with a view towards using him as a middle forward. It’s also hoped that Hoffman would provide extra veteran leadership to their young squad.
At this point, it’s widely believed that Hoffman will wind up at the Storm, and we’d imagine that the only reason he wouldn’t land there is if he receives an offer from the Super League too big for the Storm (or the Roosters, for that matter) to match.
Nonetheless, you can’t blame the Roosters for having a crack at a quality player and total professional such as Hoffman.
