MANLY SEA EAGLES rookie Kaeo Weekes has alerted Super League clubs to the possibility of bringing him the 21-year-old halfway across the world after being told he is surplus to requirements at the NRL side.
Weekes, who played nine games for the Sea Eagles in 2023, is out of contract at the end of the season and has been told by Manly that his deal will not be renewed.
That has put Super League clubs on alert as well as rival NRL sides with the rookie able to play a number of important positions including fullback, halfback and hooker.
Canberra Raiders have been heavily linked with a move for the rookie, but there’s nothing to suggest Weekes wouldn’t try his hand at Super League.
Weekes would of course count on the overseas quota but with someone so highly-rated and out of contract, the playmaker is someone that would be definitely worth a punt.
A former athletic sprint champion, the 21-year-old attended the Sea Eagles Pathways Academy and was a prolific try scorer in the SG Ball and Harold Matthews competitions after joining the club aged just 14.
