Masoe may return to NRL in 2016

St Helens prop Mose Masoe admits he may return to the NRL in 2016 after his contract with the club comes to an end, but again insisted he is not going to walk away from his current deal with the Saints any earlier than planned.

Masoe signed a two-year contract with the club following last year’s World Cup, with the Samoan playing a key role in the Saints’ run to Grand Final glory in 2014. And we revealed in League Express this week that Masoe had no intention of turning his back on the club ahead of the expiry of his contract, which still has another year left to run.

But Masoe did admit that he will weigh up his options at the end of the forthcoming season, and said he will always be open to a return home – striking up the possibility of a deal back in the NRL in the future.

“I think there was a couple of rumours that I was going to come back home but I have got one more year with St Helens and I am committed to the club,” Masoe said.

“I signed a two-year contract and I don’t want to get out of it so I am going to spend my last year over there and see how we go again. I always want to come back home because of family and the NRL but being over there now I have had a lot of fun with the new team, travelling and seeing the world.”
