David Young is to return to rugby union, after Cardiff yesterday agreed a fee with Salford to take him back to South Wales at the end of this Super League season, writes Dave Hadfield.

Young, who left the club to join Leeds six years ago, has captained the Welsh rugby league side and says that he has ambitions to win back his place in the Welsh union pack.

Martin Offiah hopes to return after a back injury for Wigan's match against Paris St-Germain on Sunday. That reopens the possibility of his playing in the first of the cross-code meetings with Bath, under league rules at Maine Road next Wednesday. Another Wigan player, Nigel Wright, is due to make his comeback after a long absence with a serious ankle injury in the Alliance team on Monday.

Andy Northey, who played in St Helens' Challenge Cup winning side on Saturday, will be out for about six weeks after tearing groin muscles in the first half of the final at Wembley.
