The Sydney Morning Herald is reporting that French’s management have approached rival clubs about their needs for a fullback. Gold Coast, North Queensland and the Wests Tigersare all clubs who are thin in the defensive position and may be interested in his services.

French debuted for Parramatta in 2016 and has made 37 NRL appearances, scoring 31 tries.

The Eels began this season with premiership aspirations, but are currently dwindling at the bottom of the ladder, which has left the club needing to make key decisions on their list and a potential makeover in need.

Hayne and Norman have done little this season to warrant a contract extension, while Mitchell Moses would likely be granted a release if he desired so. Hayne has yet to repay the Eels for the $500,000 gamble they took on him.

We could get back Moses
How about that boys and girls
Surely its not the sook seeking a release again, he's got his finals team apparently... on NRL 360 last night they mentioned Norman might have his nose out of joint a bit, so im thinking its an extension on that so i would say thats more a typo.
In the paper there refering to norman.

Excerpt from - "Storm rule out short-term Bellamy contract extension", nrl.com, Chammas on wednesday

Tigers on hunt for Holmes

The Wests Tigers have had a red-hot crack at luring Valentine Holmes to the club as their fullback. Unfortunately for the Tigers, the Sharks don't want to release him from his contract.

Holmes is on a lucrative deal and has attracted interest from the Tigers and Cowboys, however the Sharks aren't willing to budge.

It will be interesting to see what happens if they try and bring Ben Barba back.

The Tigers have also shown interest in Moses Mbye, but the new Bulldogs regime is reluctant to pay any money for players to leave to other clubs.

It's why Aiden Tolman has struggled to make his way to the exit doors despite rival clubs showing a willingness to pay a chunk of his salary.


The Bulldogs are paying for five players at rival clubs, including former skipper James Graham, and don't want that trend to continue next year.

French began the year as Parramatta’s first-choice fullback at a time when Clint Gutherson was injured, while Hayne wasn’t considered match-fit enough to fill the position. The Tinga product quickly found himself on the wing despite his preference to play in the No.1 jersey. Norman is the latest to be given a shot as coach Brad Arthur’s custodian, with Hayne yet to return from the hip complaint that has sidelined him since round four.
We can reveal that French’s representatives have sounded out rival clubs about their fullback needs, letting them know the try-scoring machine wants an opportunity to establish himself at the back. Gold Coast, North Queensland and Wests Tigers are among the sides on the lookout for a fullback, although the Tigers have made Canterbury’s Moses Mbye their priority.

French, who has scored 31 tries from 37 NRL appearances alternating between wing and fullback, is worth more on the open market as a custodian. If he was to get an offer elsewhere, the Eels would have to decide whether it is worth enforcing his contract.

Hayne’s injuries have also prevented him from mounting a case for a contract extension. The former Titan hasn’t played since being sidelined with a hip injury injury in round seven, although he is expected to come back either this week or next. While he has taken a $700,000 haircut to return to the Eels, he is yet to give Parramatta much return on the $500,000 gamble they took on him.

The potential departures of Hayne, French and Norman would fast-track the roster revamp of the underperforming club.

The Eels board will meet on Wednesday and dissecting the diabolical start to the season will be high on the agenda. One of the discussion points will be whether the Eels need a head of football, a position currently the domain of chief executive Bernie Gurr.
There could be changes in the boardroom too. Parramatta chairman Max Donnelly, in his attempts to push through constitutional reform, will consider putting forward a motion allowing previous directors to again run for the board. That raises the prospect of the likes of Denis Fitzgerald, the self-proclaimed Emperor of Parramatta, returning to the corridors of power.

Release is about Norman

I’d sign whoever comes prior to June 30.
We could front load up to 1m for French or Mbye. They’d be on the cap for peanuts over the next 2-3 years. There’s not much between them tbh French scored 19 tries in his debut season albeit he is a lightweight for a fullback possibly as quick as addo-carr.

Eels are making a grave mistake Norman is by far the better half. They are nuts if they think Moses is the better playmaker.

Sounds familiar how is Brooks going without Moses. Norman was outstanding last few years now suffering the same fate.

Any difficulty linking as 1/2s partner will never be the fault of MM. Therein lies the problem.

But we have Oliver Clark from the panthers

Agree. He wouldn't even make the bench for our current ISP side. No idea why we'd be interested when we already have better options.

Are you referring to French? Don't think he will get anywhere near as good as the Great Man. Hodgo pretty much was a gun in every facet of the game. French has speed and that seems to be it IMO.
Would very much rather Mbye than Bevan French.

French seems nothing like the ball playing fullback teams have now days.

I think Moses is stuck at Parra for a while
Not sure when his contract runs out
The only club with money who might be chasing a half could be Canberra

As for clubs not wanting to contribute money for a player leaving their club
How about this

Eg Moses Mbye on $900000 next year
We give the Bulldogs Tui for $600000 (value)
And pay $300000 towards Mbyes contract with us
Therefore Mbye will costs the Tigers around $650000 a year till his contract runs out with the dogs

On Paper the Bulldogs save $300000 a year get Tui and save face with their supporters

Works for me

Cant see any other way out for the Dogs

Let the dogs collapse unless they offer someone with legit value like RFM or Klemmer
