Wests Tigers fullback Daine Laruie has stepped into the sights of the Dolphins.
The Tigers’ lack of contract extension for the talented number 1 has left the Dolphins and Wayne Bennett believing they could get a deal over the line.
Dave Riccio reported on triple M that the Tigers are still yet to table an offer and the Dolphins could make a play if they feel they will miss out on luring Stephen Crichton from the Panthers.
“Daine Laurie is in this boat where the Tigers have six months to extend him or he goes to market on November 1.” Riccio said on Triple M.
“personally I think he is a very big part of the Tigers rebuild. Very talented fullback. He was key in both those wins over Parramatta and South Sydney.
“But at this point in time there has been no contract forthcoming for an extension for Daine Laurie.
“Watch this space. We keep talking about the Dolphins because the Reece Walsh decision to stay with the Warriors has opened the door for the Dolphins to start looking seriously for a fullback.
“That’s why we are talking about Stephen Crichton and I understand Daine Laurie will also come into that discussion.
“So Tigers fans keep an eye on that one. Hopefully your club gets their act together and offers Daine Laurie a new contract.”
