He was outstanding for the majority of his time in the NRL and always played well for England/GB. I wonder if the injuries this season have had an influence on this decision.

Ellis has been a great player and i think he still has a lot to offer.

 

But i ask the question, which English players have actually returned to Super League from the NRL as better players or enhanced the game over there ?

 

Gaz Ellis

Mark Flanagan

Keith Mason

Ian Sibbit

Mark Edmonson

Chris Thorman

Richard Mathers

Jordan Tansey

 

It would be interesting to see if some of the younger players such as Daniel Smith and Matty Russell who have spent time in the Holden Cup would make an impact in SL if given the chance.

Of that lot, Gaz Ellis apart, they were all run around players over here, before they went to Oz. A question of Wakey, Salford etc over here, or lower grade over there with a bit of sun on your back. Know which I'd choose despite the lure of Westgate on a Friday night!
