The Canberra Raiders are reportedly aware that English star George Williams is homesick.

According to Nine News’ Danny Weidler, the Raiders have learnt of the half’s homesickness but have talked to his agent and pleaded he remain at the Green Machine.

It places some sort of doubt over his NRL future, having been separated from his family throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.

Weidler broke the news on Twitter on Monday afternoon.

“The Canberra Raiders are are aware that their star English half George Williams is homesick – they’ve talked to his agent and asked him to stay put. The club understands it’s been difficult with Covid and not seeing family and will put support around him,” Weidler tweeted.

Williams has made 29 first-grade appearances for the Raiders since joining the club ahead of the 2020 season.

He previously played 178 games for Super League club Wigan Warriors.

The 26-year old is currently sidelined with a hamstring injury and expected to return in the next two weeks.

The Raiders currently sit in ninth position with a 3-5 record, having lost to the South Sydney Rabbitohs last Thursday night.
