Will Joey Manu Ever Return To The NRL?



Sydney Roosters superstar Joey Manu could be set for an NRL return after his stint in Japanese rugby union as early as Round 12 of the 2025 season.

According to The Daily Telegraph, Manu’s contract with Toyota Verblitz only runs for one rugby union season which runs from early
December until late May.

Therefore, Manu will be free to sign with the Tricolours or any other NRL Club midway through 2025 NRL season.

So the Roosters will reportedly have A$500,000 in their salary cap for next season ready to pay for Manu for half the season.
