Tigers and Sharks’ rumoured swap deal

Reports have emerged this morning that the Wests Tigers and Cronulla Sharks were in talks for a swap deal.

This deal would see Matt Moylan head to the Wests Tigers and out of favour Ryan Matterson head to the Sharks.

Matterson has however been rumoured to have met with the Parramatta Eels last week and the Gold Coast Titans this week, meaning this deal could fall apart depending on whether or not Matterson can find a better deal.

Matt Moylan on the other hand, whilst extremely talented, has been injury prone since joining the Sharks, and with the emergence of outside backs such as Ronaldo Mulitalo and Bronson Xerri and Jesse Ramien likely to return, it seems likely that theSharks are looking to move Moylan on to decongest their back five options and their salary cap.
