South Sydney Rabbitohs winger and Lebanon international Josh Mansour has admitted he would be open to a move to Super League from the NRL.

The 32-year-old is currently in England on international duty with Lebanon for the World Cup, and told Love Rugby League he is using the opportunity to explore opportunities.

Mansour has made 174 appearances in the NRL, but was limited to just five with the Rabbitohs in 2022, scoring twice.

He has scored a total of 86 tries in the competition Down Under. Mansour made his debut in 2012 with Penrith Panthers, remaining with the club until 2021, when he joined the Rabbitohs.

Josh Mansour open to options

“I’m still off-contract, so definitely (I’d be open to a move),” Mansour said.

“That’s why I love this opportunity as well. I can get used to the area and get used to the people. So far, so good.

“I’m really enjoying the culture here. I’ve just got to convince the misses now!”

Mansour featured for Lebanon in their opening World Cup game against New Zealand, falling to a 34-12 defeat to the number #1 ranked team in the world.

While he remains keen to play on in 2023, Mansour admitted his future has been left to his manager so he can concentrate on the tournament in England with the Cedars.

“I’ve left it all to my manager,” Mansour continued.

“I told him I want to focus all my energy into the World Cup. You never know, this could be my last one, I don’t know for sure. But all my energy and attention for now is with Lebanon.”
