Makinson sighted in Newcastle sparking NRL rumours

St Helens winger and Golden Boot winner Tommy Makinson has been spotted in Newcastle, New South Wales, sparking intense rumours that the flyer could be on the move to the NRL.

The Knights could well be on the lookout for a winger with Ken Sio moving back to England to Salford following a two-year spell with the Knights.

Newcastle are putting together an impressive squad as they attempt to build on a solid campaign in 2018. David Klemmer has been brought in as the enforcer they need along with Tim Glasby from Melbourne Storm and Makinson could provide the X-Factor on the wing.
