Canberra Raiders’ Terry Campese could be set for a sensational move to Super League next year, after the club confirmed they are interested in the services of the 30-year-old to replace their pair of departed half-backs.
Campese came close to a move to Hull FC earlier this year, who faces a season of uncertainty if he remains at Canberra in 2015. And WA Today are reporting that the Robins are interested in snapping up Campese, with chief executive Mike Smith admitting he ticks all the boxes in terms of what they are looking for.
“He’s been there, done it and got the t-shirt, so we’ve got a tick in the box there,” Smith said. “We look at the player, the family background, the history, the age, the injuries, all those factors before we go for a player.
“There’s not many young guys who can command the park like he could, he’s got huge experience and age isn’t a barrier because we’ve seen players playing to 34-35.
“He’s on quite a long list of players … I can’t rule him out but I can’t say it’s anything other than initial inquiries, to be honest, about a number of players.”
