TIGERS POACH TALENTED AUCKLAND TRIO
Wests Tigers have raided the Warriors’ heartland, signing three fine young prospects from Auckland.
All 18, Jarney Proctor (hooker/halfback), Tamehana Paruru (back-rower) and Tray Lolesio (prop) are Aucklands Manurewa Marlins juniors and had several NRL clubs on their trail.
But the trio decided their best chance of a pathway to the NRL was with the Tigers and will link up with the club in coming weeks for pre-season training.
All are probably 12 months or more off breaking into the NRL but have the talent to be great buys for the club in the long term.
