RE: Mitch Moses Denied Release - Confirmed
YOUNG gun Mitchell Moses has knocked back a $3 million three-year offer to remain at Wests Tigers and is asking for an immediate release to switch to the Parramatta Eels.
Two days after new coach Ivan Cleary told the Tigers players they needed to make a decision about whether they wanted to be on the team bus or not, the club is now faced with a tough decision.
Moses is set to switch to the Eels next season.
Do the Tigers dig their heels in and make him play out the rest of the season? Or do they let him join the Eels immediately because there’s no point having a player at your club who doesn’t want to be there?
The decision is NOT about money.
If it was then the local junior would be staying at Concord.
The Eels have convinced Moses the best thing for his football development is to link with a strong pack of forwards with dynamic edge backrowers.
Beau Scott makes a damn good body guard. So too Manu Mau.
Given the basket case the Tigers have been for the past 18 months, can you blame him?
It’s a live hand grenade for new coach Ivan Cleary and CEO Justin Pascoe.
If Moses is granted the release he’s asking for, it could mean the local junior lines up against the Tigers in the Easter Monday blockbuster at ANZ Stadium in round seven.
From a Parramatta Eels point of view, it’s a huge coup.
They’re guaranteed to get Moses for next year and beyond but if they can lure him west for the rest of this season then they’re a genuine chance of competing for the premiership.
If it happens this season, look for Moses to play halfback and Corey Norman to return to playing five-eighth.
Clint Gutherson is so versatile he can play anywhere in the Eels backline.
RE: If players want to earn millions, shouldn’t they be playing like it?
Teddy, Moses and Woods want to be winners and a huge salary but how are we sposed to build a team under the cap that is competative. Seriously if winning is so important to those 3 they should take pay cuts so we can have a winning team.
