Ex-Hull KR boss closing in on Wests Tigers target as NRL transfer saga drags on as fears of move increase

The saga surrounding a Wests Tigers transfer target is continuing to drag on.

The Tigers are, alongside the Canterbury Bulldogs, chasing a move for NRL star halfback Mitchell Moses from the Parramatta Eels after he led the club to a first Grand Final since 2009 last season.

Moses has entered the last 12 months of his current deal with the Eels allowing him to negotiate with other clubs.

According to the Daily Telegraph he has a clause in his contract which states he doesn’t have to in form the Eels of what he intends to do until Round 10 of the NRL season in 2023.

The Australian publication have also reported that the halfback is having negotiations with the Eels but that the Eels themselves would not comment on proceedings at present.

It is believed that his friendship with Wests Tigers’ star Luke Brooks could tempt him back to the Tigers whilst the Bulldogs are willing to offer him the captaincy.

However, according to the telegraph, fears that he will take this move away are increasing at the Eels 29 days after he could negotiate with other clubs though his future is still unset.

Nonetheless, he has held a meeting with ex-Hull KR boss and now Tigers coach Tim Sheens in England during the Rugby League World Cup whilst Sheens did the same with another transfer target in the shape of Wigan Warriors star John Bateman.
