Jackson Hastings has dropped his biggest hint yet that he will stay in Super League and not return to Australia just yet. The Salford half-back has been a revelation since signing a short-term deal, which is due to expire at the end of the Qualifiers, and there has been talk of him returning to Australia.
There is also sure to be interest from rival Super League clubs, and although a decision has yet to be made, Hastings thinks he will stay in England. Whether that is with Salford remains to be seen.
“It’s tough to answer because I don’t know, but at this stage, it’s more than likely I’m going to be here,” he said when asked if he will stay.
“There’s a couple of reasons for that but I’ve no reason not to leave. There’s nothing telling me I’ve got to rush home. I’m 22, I’m still trying to find myself and find myself as a player. Some of the blokes we’ve got here are bringing the best out of me, and I said to Watto when we were in talks that I wanted to get my running game back.
“I’ve been really lucky I have players who take the heat off me here, and I’ve been able to get back to me as a young kid. I’ve got a smile on my face, and I love interacting with the fans.”
