The star Broncos centre says it is “dream” to win the Super League title before the end of his career, however the 32-year-old faces a long wait before being able to make the move to the UK.
Hodges is contracted to the Broncos until the end of the 2016 season, meaning he would be 35 before any move could eventuate.
However, the Cairns-born star says his immediate focus is to win more NRL title with the Broncos.
“My dream has always been to go over there (Super League) and win a comp there,” Hodges told The Courier Mail.
“That is something I have always thought about. I have another two years left here. If we win a comp between then I would love to go over there and have a run. We haven’t won a comp at our club in a long time.
“As you get older that is what drives you. We haven’t won one in eight years. That’s what keeps me going, winning more competitions. I still want another one or two.”
The two-time premiership winner is in the mix to be named the club’s sole captain after new coach Wayne Bennett abolished the Broncos’ co-captaincy policy.
