NRL 2019: Roosters sign up star sharks Kyle Flanagan


The Sydney Roosters allegedly captured the signature of Cronulla's young man, Kyle Flanagan.

According Channel 7, the 20-year-old, who has been linked to the Tricolors for some time, has just finalized an agreement that will make him change clubs from 2020.

Flanagan, the son of former Sharks coach Shane Flanagan, is considered one of the best players in the competition, but he is behind Shaun Johnson and Chad Townsend at the Sharks.

There were reports earlier this season that Flanagan, who is under contract with the Sharks until 2021, can move before the deadline of June 30, but Channel 7 reports the sharks refused to let him leave early.

Flanagan made seven appearances in the NRL so far, with six of them coming this season, while Johnson was dismissed due to a tendon injury.

The Roosters need a player to partner with Luke Keary in the socks next season after the retirement of Cooper Cronk and Flanagan may become a long-term option.

Flanagan is the second young player to be hired by the Roos for next year, with Sam Walker, the son of former Brisbane player Ben Walker, also agreeing with a move.

A series of NRL and Australian rugby clubs were chasing Walker's signing, but the 16-year-old was influenced after a meeting with coach Trent Robinson of Keary and Roosters.
