Whitehead tipped to do England proud in NRL

Huddersfield Giants star, Luke Robinson has tipped Elliott Whitehead to do phenomenally well in the NRL when he moves next year, and do his countrymen proud.

Whitehead, the latest Englishman to confirm a move `Down Under’, will make the switch to Canberra in 2016, after the end of the season with Catalans.

“He will set the NRL alight,” Robinson told the BBC’s Super League Show.  “Elliott has been fantastic for the Catalans this year.  A lot of things they have done well have come off the back of his play.  “He’s got an offload, he’s got pace.”

“Hopefully he will do us English lads proud down there.”
