“On leave so sorry if this is already out there … Souths have been doing some serious wooing of Knights winger Dom Young over the last few days. Sam Burgess has been heavily involved in talks with him on the Gold Coast and at Byron. And now back to vacation,” Weidler tweeted.
Young is contracted for the 2023 season at the Knights but is open to a switch for the following season.
