British duo in Australia attract Super League interest

Two Brits currently in Australia are attracting interest from clubs in the UK. Rugby League Live understands that both Riley Dean and Robson Stevens are considering returning to their homeland after spending time playing down under.

Both players are currently playing in the Queensland Cup for Mackay Cutters, where they have gained further experience at the start of their careers. Former Warrington Wolves halfback Dean has made an impression for the Cutters, producing 12 assists in as many appearances this season, which places him third in the competition overall. He has also scored two tries and kicked 42 goals.

Meanwhile, Stevens is a prop who went overseas following a spell at Huddersfield Giants. The 22-year-old, who also gained experience at Dewsbury Rams, made 15 appearances for the Cutters last year.

With further experience now under their belts, the pair are both considering returns to UK to continue their careers. Both players are understood to have attracted interest at both Super League and Championship level and will consider their options in the coming weeks.

Dean has been widely tipped to have a good career in the game. The Halifax-born halfback made his Super League debut as a 17-year-old and had made 14 appearances in the competition before his departure. He also played 28 games in the Championship, scoring ten tries.
