St Helens hooker James Roby has refused to rule out a move to the NRL in the future, despite turning down a switch to the Parramatta Eels.

The 27-year-old is set for a testimonial after spending 10 years at the Lancashire club and recently rejected the offer of a move to the Eels from the 2015 season.

The England star, who is currently out with a foot injury, says that he will take his family into consideration before making any decision on his future and that as a result the money available in Australia is tempting.
