From Zero Tackle;

"Curtis Rona will be at the Wests Tigers before June 30. After being heavily linked to the club last off-season, the former Bulldog and Cowboy has been seen at Wests HQ in recent weeks".
Hopefully it is true but i am becoming more doubtful by the week.
I'm ever sceptical, but surely we wouldn't release Kev without someone lined up.

Not only Kev but two other centres, Suli and Milne have been released. Wests Tigers would be silly if they don't sign a decent before June 30 when they still have CAP money available.

Sharks fans seem to think they are getting Barba because they are collecting fullbacks now

Is it possible we could jag Brian Kelly early given that the Sea Eagles are looking at offloading someone?

This is on the SMH website, cant access it myself just the headline.

Wests Tigers prepare for the next evolution of their roster
by Adrian Proszenko

Wests Tigers have hatched plans for a strike centre and a fullback, but a landmark deal means they aren't just looking at the short term.

I’m pretty sure the landmark deal is their agreement with the McArthur region.

Seeing how we need depth in the outside backs, Gehamat Shibasaki is one we should be looking at. Can play centre,wing and fullback. 184cm 96kg

Why wouldnt he be he is the type of fullback we need, as well as Thompson has played he doesnt have the ball playing ability or creativity which is what we are lacking.

If its a culture thing i would expect any signature would come with some conditions around behaviour.

as night follows day i can see that this so called signing will end up in the bin as it has so many times before. i like most on here am getting sick and tired of us releasing players ( and i know we had to) yet no one comes in while clubs all around sign just what we need and yet we have 1.2 million in the cap, my faith in IVAN is starting to wane somewhat, COME ON POWERS TO BE SIGN ONE DECENT PLAYER AND GIVE UR FANS A LIFT.

Maybe they were jealous of our collection of Hookers a few years ago.
