Cade Cust coup

It seems as though Wigan have pulled off a major coup in landing Australian half-back Cade Cust.

There is a piece in the Manchester Evening News which is an overall reaction from Manly fans, who are gutted he has left the club. The 23-year-old made 26 NRL appearances for the Sea Eagles and played for the Indigenous All Stars last year.

Joey Lussick en route

New St Helens signing Joey Lussick is on his way to England to link up with his new club for pre-season training.

The 25-year-old hooker has joined the Super League champions on a three-year deal from NRL side Parramatta Eels. Saints announced their squad numbers yesterday, with Lussick wearing the number 14 shirt.
