Current free agents who played in Super League last season

With the Super League’s starting date of March 25 approaching, we take a look at some of the stars that are still free agents heading into the 2021 campaign.

Ben Jones-Bishop

The former Leeds and Salford winger is still searching for a deal heading into the 2021 season.

He linked up with Wakefield in 2016 but decided to look for a new challenge this year, turning down an extension with Chris Chester’s side.

The 32-year-old Jamaica international shouldn’t be too long without a club.

Ukuma Ta’ai

The 34-year-old Tongan forward has made more than 200 career appearances across both the NRL and Super League.

He became a fans’ favourite during his time at the John Smith’s Stadium since helping Huddersfield secure the League Leader’s Shield in his debut year in 2013 with the club.

In 2020, he made just nine appearances due to injury and is still without a club for 2021.

Weller Hauraki

The former Parramatta Eels, Leeds, Castleford and Salford forward joined Hull KR in 2019 on a two-year deal.

Hauraki led Hull KR as club captain in 2020, wearing shirt number 11, and has stated that he is “not finished yet”.

Tyrone McCarthy

Ireland international Tyrone McCarthy recently shared on social media that his time at Salford has come to an end.

The 31-year-old has featured for Warrington, Leigh, Wakefield, Swinton, Northern Pride, Hull KR and St George Illawarra Dragons in his career so far, and is on the search for a new club ahead of 2021.

Tom Olbison

Olbison is one of a few players still without a club heading into 2021 after the fall of Toronto.

The former Bradford and Widnes forward has made more than 200 career appearances since his debut for the Bulls in 2009.

A strong forward and at just 29 years of age, Olbison would be a fine addition to a Super League squad.
