Kyle set for Wire?

When he left Super League in late 2011, Kyle Eastmond was regarded as one of the hottest prospects in the sport and his conversion to rugby union with Bath was viewed as a great shame, especially for the St Helens fans he played for for four years and had a reasonable try scoring record.

However, now, after five years in union and as he nears a hundred appearances in the code, the man who has represented England in both codes is looking set for a sensational return to rugby league with Warrington Wolves said to be in discussions with the 28 year old with a view to him wearing the primrose and blue jersey in 2019.

Eastmond has recently left Wasps and is, therefore, currently a free agent and the Wire are keen to get the signature of the experienced player. During his previous spell in the sport, he featured as both a half back and full back but, with Warrington seemingly well stocked in both departments and little sign of Kevin Brown, Tyrone Roberts or Stefan Ratchford moving on, it will be intriguing to see where he fits in head coach Steve Price’s plans.

Still, it would be a problem most head coaches would love to have to deal with.
