Sydney Roosters star Luke Keary backflips on retirement, signs with Super League club Catalans Dragons

Luke Keary is set to backflip on his decision to retire from rugby league, with the Sydney Roosters playmaker closing in on a move to the Super League.

Reports emerged last month that Keary was weighing up extending his career overseas and 9News Sydney’s Danny Weidler has now confirmed the news.

The 32-year-old will head to Catalans next season on a two-year deal, joining the likes of Tariq Sims and Matt Ikuvalu at the club.

Keary had re-signed with the Roosters this year until the end of 2025, before making the decision to walk away from the final year of his deal.

Catalans are yet to confirm the signing, with an announcement expected soon.
