NRL: Josh Addo-Carr future latest

The future of Josh Addo-Carr remains the big talking point of the NRL off-season but the Canterbury Bulldogs insist he is going nowhere.

Addo-Carr has had a tough few weeks with off-field issues, and rumours have been rife that the Bulldogs could be willing to let him go.

There is no shortage of interest with three rival NRL clubs said to be circling should the Bulldogs be open to doing business.

That looks unlikely at this stage, but the rumours look set to rumble on for now. Here is the latest on the future of one of the NRL’s top try-scorers.

Addo-Carr rumour mill

Addo-Carr is one of the best wingers in the competition and has managed to score 129 tries during his 165 appearances in the NRL.

Blessed with devastating pace, ‘The Foxx’ would be on most clubs' wanted list if he was to become available, and rumours have suggested he is unsettled.

The winger has not quite hit the heights expected of him since making the surprise switch from the Melbourne Storm.

He managed just 11 tries in 15 appearances for the Bulldogs in 2023, which is disappointing by his high standards.

In fairness, he has been part of a Bulldogs side that has also failed to live up to expectations following a host of high-profile signings.

But Addo-Carr is still a huge part of the Bulldogs' plans according to supremo Phil Gould, who has blasted the rumours.

Three in the mix for Addo-Carr

Despite the denials regarding a potential move, three rival NRL clubs are said to be watching the situation carefully.

They are Parramatta Eels, St George Illawarra Dragons and Newcastle Knights. There is also talk that his former club Wests Tigers could be in the mix.

The Eels seem to be the most keen however, and there has been talk of a potential swap deal involving Parra star Ryan Matterson.

Canterbury need to bolster their front row after losing a number of players and Matterson could appeal.

As for Newcastle, they need to replace English gun Dominic Young, who has joined Sydney Roosters, and Addo-Carr would be the perfect replacement.

New Tigers coach Benji Marshall wants more speed in his backline, and there are not many quicker than Addo-Carr.

The Dragons also have a new coach at the helm in Shane Flanagan, and the capture of Addo-Carr would be a huge statement of intent.

The Foxx to stay put?

Despite all the rumours, Gould insists that Addo-Carr is going nowhere as the Bulldogs plan to make an assault up the ladder in 2024.

More big names such as former Penrith Panthers star Stephen Critchon have arrived and Gould has promised they are not finished yet.

Addo-Carr is clearly a part of those plans with the Bulldogs priced at 41.00 to win the 2024 NRL grand final.
