Five Clubs Chase Lockyer

darren lockyerFive engage Super League clubs are on the trail of Australia captain Darren Lockyer, including Hull Kingston Rovers.

The Brisbane Broncos and Queensland skipper, 31, is out of contract at the end of 2009 and in the past has spoken about the possibility of ending his career in England.

Lockyer’s manager George Mimis confirmed that "five or six" clubs had approached him about signing the Test and Origin star from 2010 onwards.

"Each year there’s interest," Mimis told the Sydney Morning Herald.

"This year, at least five clubs, maybe six, would be interested."

Hull KR are one of the clubs, although Mimis refused to divulge the others.

He said he had already had some "tentative" discussions with Lockyer about "what life might look like" after his contract with the Broncos expired.

"Super League would feature as one of the discussion points," Mimis said.

"It’s a possibility. He’s enjoyed the time he’s had, football-wise, over there.

"He’s enjoyed travelling there on a couple of occasions socially as well. He doesn’t dislike the whole environment."
