GOSSIP: Roby targeted by NRL side

Newcastle Knights are interested in taking St Helens and England hooker James Roby to the NRL.

The Knights, coached by former Saints chief Nathan Brown, are keen on boosting their squad after finishing with the wooden spoon last year.

And TotalRL.com understands that Roby is high on their list of targets after another impressive season in Super League and on the international scene.

Roby’s thoughts on a move to Australia are not yet known, but one St Helens source revealed Newcastle have yet to approach them about any of their players.
