Four potential destinations for Kevin Larroyer

Widnes Vikings


Head coach Denis Betts told League Express two weeks ago that he is on the lookout for new players, with a back-rower at the top of his wishlist.

Larroyer fits the bill. With proven Super League experience, the French international could do a job filling the void left by Setaimata Sa following his departure.

Still only 27, Larroyer should be approaching the best years of his career. He could prove to be a wise addition for the Vikings.

Bradford Bulls


Bradford are in need of back-rowers after an exodus in that department.

Dale Ferguson, Danny Addy, Jay Pitts and Rhys Lovegrove have all moved on, leaving the Bulls light in that department.

It makes Larroyer an obvious replacement, and a strong one too given his reputation in the game.


Will Halifax be among the clubs doing business today?

After the departure of Dane Manning to Batley and the sudden exit of Matt Haggerty, Halifax’s pack looks low in depth.

It’s been well documented that Fax are working with a much smaller budget this year, which could make a move for Larroyer unrealistic.

But, if the former Hull KR man is struggling for options, Fax could benefit by bringing in a top-quality back-rower to replace Manning, who will be a big miss in Richard Marshall’s side.

Sheffield Eagles


The Eagles have yet to make a signing ahead of 2017 and have lost 11 players from their 2016 squad.

It leaves Mark Aston in desperate need of players going into the new year, but he should also have money to spend.

That means Aston would likely be able to budget for the former Catalans man, and he would be a very good replacement for Michael Knowles, who has joined Featherstone.
