England winger Ryan Hall is set to make the move to the NRL when he becomes the latest big-name player to leave Leeds.

The 30-year-old will join all-time greats Jamie Peacock, Kylie Leuluai, Danny McGuire, Rob Burrow and Kevin Sinfield in bringing a glorious career with the Rhinos to a close when he leaves the club at the end of the season.

Hall, a one-club man who has scored 231 tries in 327 appearances since making his debut in 2007, is out of contract this year and rejected Leeds’ offer of a new deal.

He is thought to have been lined up by Sydney Roosters as a replacement for Australia Test winger Blake Ferguson, who is leaving the club to join Parramatta at the end of the year.

Hall, who joined the Rhinos as a junior in 2006 from local side Oulton Raiders, said: “I have had 12 amazing seasons as a Leeds Rhinos player and I am immensely proud of what we have achieved together.

“For me personally, I feel that this is the right time for a new challenge after such a long period at the club and my decision in no way reflects on the Rhinos.”

Hall is the fifth highest try scorer in the history of Leeds and a six-time Grand Final winner.

He won the Lance Todd Trophy in 2014 with a two-try performance to help Leeds lift the Challenge Cup for the first time in 15 years and took his remarkable international try tally to 35 in 38 appearances during England’s win over New Zealand in Denver in June.

Sinfield, now back at Headingley as director of rugby, said: “Naturally we are disappointed to lose a player of the quality of Ryan Hall.

“The club were keen to keep him here and we made him an offer that reflected his standing in the game.

“I know that Ryan will be doing everything between now and the end of the season to make sure his time at the club ends on the best possible note.

“He will remain a close friend of the Rhinos; as a Leeds lad, playing for his club and winning with the Rhinos means so much to him and I am sure we will remain in regular contact with him.

“The departure of any senior player is a chance for someone else to come into our group, just as it was Ryan when he first broke through over a decade ago, and we will be looking to strengthen the whole group for 2019 and beyond with this opportunity.”
