Sydney Roosters rookie halfback Sean O’Sullivan is about to be thrusted into the spotlight and has two proud clubs fighting for his signature.
According to The Australian, the Roosters would love to resign O’Sullivan, however, the Brisbane Broncos have shown interest in luring the rookie north after his solid debut for the Tricolours against the Gold Coast Titans last Sunday night.
It’s also understood the Canberra Raiders were also keen on the young playmaker, but have ultimately not progressed any further with the matter as they believe O’Sullivan will sign with either the Broncos or Roosters.
The Broncos believe O’Sullivan would be the right type of player to contest the No. 7 jersey alongside Kodi Nikorima.
O’Sullivan, 19, has been viewed as a long-term replacement for Cooper Cronk, and impressed in his first grade debut for the Roosters, scoring what has now been revealed as a disallowed try.
The youngster was at the hands of a conversational call after momentarially losing control of the ball into the upright before grounding it in the ingoal.
Referee boss Bernard Sutton conceded the on-field and video referees made the wrong call.
“However once it touched the ground it constituted a knock-on and should have been ruled that way,” Sutton said.
Expecting to return to NSW cup this weekend for the Roosters feeder club, O’Sullivan will have a huge decision to make regarding his playing career.
