Having lost a former Test winger next year in Blake Ferguson, the Roosters haven’t aimed low in finding his replacement.
The club today announced the signing of English international Ryan Hall for next season, on a two-year deal that will see the winger head to Bondi until the end of 2020.
Though he may be anonymous to NRL fans who are ignorant of the English game, we can tell you that he’s big, he’s powerful, and he’s accomplished pretty much everything the Super League has to offer.
Whether that translates to the NRL remains to be seen, but he’s about as well placed as anyone for success.
Hall has made 313 appearances for Leeds, and 32 Tests for England.
