There has been constant talk about Lewis Dodd after his drop goal that won the World Club Challenge.
NRL clubs are massively interested in the St Helens star and now former Sky Sports commentator has said that Wests Tigers are “really really keen” on the halfback.
He said on the Eddie and Stevo podcast: “His drop goal won the World Club Challenge for St Helens against Penrith and suddenly Australia sat up and took notice of him.
“Now he’s hotly tipped to be on his way to the NRL at the end of the season. Wests Tigers are reportedly really really keen, although one officials at St Helens has advised him not to go to Wests.”
This official is reportedly Mike Rush who according to recent reports has warned Dodd from going to Wests.
Old partner in crime Stevo added: “Well they haven’t won a game and they’re bottom of the league, that could be the reason. Take your Einstein’s cap off and just get yourself under the situation, why would you want to go to the bottom of the table? And then I think to myself that’s what I did in 1973, Penrith Panthers were the wooden spooners and I signed to go there.
“It’s all gown to one thing, money! You don’t get many opportunities in life, you don’t get many opportunities in rugby league. If someone’s going to throw that cheque at you then you’re going to take it. Why not?
“Lewis Dodd is a great player.”
Ultimately, Eddie wants Dodd to stay in Super League: “I would personally like to see Lewis Dodd staying in the Super League because I find him absolutely fantastic to watch.”
