I have no idea if it's true or not but rumours abound on Twitter that Kyle Eastmond wants to return to RL.
It wold be great to have him back in the sport, he was immensely talented, O.K he was nowhere near the finished article but another 2 years or so and I think he would've stood alongside Sam Tomkins as the two big superstars of the sport over here. He had everything long and short kicking game, passing off both hands, attacking skills etc he just needed to learn his trade for another couple of years in order to fulfill his potential.
He would also be the missing link for the England half back spot me thinks.
Let's just hop he is on Salford's hitlist of new signings, he's a local lad and would fit in well at the new set up.
Are you his Agent , you should be , you had me reaching for the Dr's Chequebook for a minute .. but yes I wouldn't be surprised if Salford - Wigan - Saints or any other cashed up SL were keeped tabs on his progress should he get cold feet in the west country .
Kyle came out of the same school as Jordan Turner , and I think got his head turned by Chris Ashton- Stephen Myler RU moves ,
I guess nearly 2 yrs away from the hustle & bustle of SL as a pivotal player , being stuck out on the Wing at the Rec , with just a Saxons appearance?
His Current Deal with Bath has another RU season to run - June 2014
Had he stayed in RL , I doubt he would have been on a par with Tomkins as the poster -boy of SL , but he would have been amongst the top names had he stayed injury free , and we wouldn't have been ' d**king around making Chase English to fill a half back spot in the England Squad .
the Cynic in me suspects if there is a latent desire to suddenly return to SL ,it's with one eye on the increasing value of NRL contracts & lifestyle in Sydney & the Goldcoast .
