Former Dragons, Cowboys and Eels hooker Cameron King is looking to return to the league for the 2020 season, according to a report by Fox Sports.

The 27-year-old is currently plying his trade in England with Featherstone Rovers, but made it clear that he is hoping clubs are interested, with intentions to return to Australia.

“I’m pushing to come back and see what happens I guess,” King said in a message.

His player agent Sam Ayoub – who remains in Australia – has told the Tigers of his availability, a club eager to fill their No.9 spot.

King already has plenty of connections with the Sharks, given his mother is working there, while Cronulla is also looking for a cheap hooker.

Back in 2010, King debuted with St George Illawarra, playing 43 games for three clubs across seven seasons.

  1. Cameron King has always been a good player, but his biggest problem has been injuries, which seem to have stopped him from developing into an even better player. In the 3 NRL clubs he has played with, being out for long periods with injuries have made him a risk to resign, hence his move to England.
    An NRL club might give him a chance with an incentive based contract, and If he can stay on the field it will be a win-win for club and player. Good luck to him and I hope he does well.
