Feki played alongside Prior at NRL club Cronulla Sharks before joining Tigers at the end of last season on a three-year deal.

Leeds believe Prior, who played for New South Wales in 2018 and has more than 250 NRL appearances to his name, would bring power and experience to their pack.

And having already made the move to Betfred Super League, Feki predicts Prior will be a hit if he joins him in England.

“If they get him, that’s a good buy.”
