CURTIS Naughton wanted to play English Super League.

But Bradford, they said no. Told him he wasn’t ready. So the teenage fullback packed his bags, flew halfway around the world and yesterday morning agreed to terms with reigning NRL premiers, the Sydney Roosters.

"This is what I’ve always dreamt about," Naughton told The Daily Telegraph outside Roosters headquarters, moments after his meeting. 

"It’s just come about a bit sooner than I expected."

Still only 18, Naughton is already shaping as key member of the Roosters Generation Next.

More than just an extremely gifted athlete, this young Bradford Academy Squad member also boasts the type of confidence required to walk out on the Bulls with two years to run on your contract. Despite initially telling English press he was moving to Australia to follow mum Lynne, who is emigrating here around Christmas, the Dewsbury product yesterday revealed there was more to his decision than just a strong family bond. 




I hope he finds his feet at the Roosters and does well.

He needs to get a shot in the first team early or he may get frustrated like Matty Russell did.

Good luck to him.

Unfortunately, fullback is one position where we've got plenty of cover. I hope we've taken out an option on his contract.
