Despite being under contract for next year, Roosters utility half Jayden Nikorima has been linked to a move to the Super League, as a result of salary cap pressures.
According to 7Sport, Nikorima, the younger brother of Broncos half Kodi Nikorima, is expected to join Catalans Dragons.
Nikorima was brought over from the Broncos last year on good money, with a view to using him as a utility, who could potentially move into the halves full-time down the track. However, after filling in during Mitchell Pearce‘s two month poodle-enforced absence, he hasn’t been sighted in first grade since.
As a result, he looks like being a prime candidate to be moved on, and the Super League could be a good opportunity for him to establish himself in the top grade.
The 20-year-old has played 7 first grade games for the Roosters.
