There's been an influx of Englishmen to the NRL in recent years and 2019 is no exception. Raiders fans can look forward to seeing John Bateman and Ryan Sutton running out for the Green Machine, while Roosters fans will get to see Ryan Hall in the NRL at long last.

Some Super League exports have been welcome additions such as Josh Hodgson and Elliot Whitehead, while other players you've probably forgotten about, like Jordan Turner and Greg Eden.

Sadly they can't all be the next Sam Burgess or James Graham, but here are five current Super League stars who could shine in the NRL if they decide to head Down Under.

2. George Williams

Wigan's five-eighth has been dazzling Super League defences since 2013, and he's still only 24 years old.

A two-time Super League winner and a former Super League Young Player of the Year, Williams has spoken openly of his desire to try his luck in the NRL at some point and there's sure to be a queue of clubs looking at him.

His kicking game still needs improvement but there aren't many better halves than him at taking the line on when he's on form.

  1. You can add Joe Wardle and Dan Sarginson to the list of pommie flops in the NRL, and we saw Joe Burgess play for the Roosters for part of the 2016 season before joining the Burgess trio at Redfern.

  2. Definitely agree with Wardle and Sarginson, maybe the next article could be a list of flops, there’s certainly been plenty.

  3. He’s a beast, could definitely do well in the NRL. Unfortunately he’s completely ruled out moving to Oz though for family reasons so I’ve only included players who I think might make the move at some point.

  4. Tom johnstone best finisher in super league watch his tries on youtube if he was at wigan or saint helens he would bag 40+ a season 24 in 23 games for lesser club he scored hat trick on international debut and got 3 in friendly last weekend against hull

  5. Whoopi …Zac Hardaker had been English Super League Man Of Steel.
    Came out to Penrith for half a season. Doubt if I’ve ever seen a worse back take the field in first grade.
