Luke George could walk away from Rugby League

Departing Bradford Bulls winger Luke George has revealed he may consider pursuing a career away from Rugby League, after admitting he is unsure what the future holds in the coming weeks and months.

George will not be offered a new deal at the Bulls after just one season with the club, after making just 12 appearances during the first year of an initial two-year contract. That second year has become void after the Bulls were relegated from Super League, and George said a career away from the game could be a distinct possibility as he weighs up his options.

“I’m happy to move on from the club and even rugby in general,” he told the Telegraph and Argus. “I’ve got other options with regards to moving on in my career with rugby but also without it.

“I’ve not made any decisions yet about what direction I want to go in but I used to work in solicitors’ offices when I was younger.

“I’ve got that background and could potentially go back to that but I’m just going to leave it open for now. Finances are a factor and I’d have to think about what I’d want out of it.”
