Merrin to quit Super League for NRL return


//

Despite heated denials over the past two weeks, former Test forward Trent Merrin is set to quit English club Leeds and return to the NRL.

Merrin will come back home as a result of ‘personal reasons’ just months into a rich four-year deal with the Rhinos.

Merrin does not have an Aussie club at this stage but is most likely to end up at the Dragons to replace suspended forward Jack de Belin.

A Dragons junior, the 29-year-old Merrin played over 130 games for the Big Red V between 2009 and 2015.

The former Blues State of Origin star then had three seasons at Penrith before making the big move to the UK.

His former Panthers teammate Reagan Campbell-Gillard recently hinted on radio that the big forward had not settled in well at Leeds.

"I think he's pretty much homesick," Campbell-Gillard said.

"Their team is not going too well. Mez is a competitor and doesn't like losing.

"I think he's a little bit low the moment, also with no wins and a bit of pressure as a key signing or a marquee signing for them.

"He doesn't handle pressure too well, I know that for a fact. It would be nice to see him come back but I'm not too sure."
