New Zealand fullback Kevin Locke is keen to return to the NRL.

Fox Sports’ George Clarke reports Locke has his eye set on returning to the NRL after being sacked by Super League club Wakefield in 2016.

According to, the 31-year-old has attracted interest from the Ipswich Jets, who are a feeder club for Newcastle and Souths Logan Magpies, a feeder club for Brisbane.

Locke played 89 games for the Warriors between 2009-2014 before joining Salford and then Wakefield in the Super League.

He made eight appearances for the New Zealand national team, the last being in 2013.


  1. I’m sure this story appeared on this site sometime last season. Put simply, I don’t think there is any chance of Kevin Locke making it back into the NRL. He’s been away for a long time and that plus his age make it almost impossible. Only a player like Cameron Smith would have any chance under these circumstances.
