Fox Sports has been told the Tigers intend to try and proceed with the Storm agreement to release Grant to the Concord-based club for 12 months.

Could still get Grant

You have to question how that will benefit Melbourne though. Wouldn’t be on much money and excellent back up.

Storm might see the benefit with him getting NRL experience before he takes over from Smith. Only thing I can think of.

Wests Tigers have today announced the club’s 2020 Canterbury Cup and Jersey Flegg squads as both sides continue their preparations for the season opener on Sunday, March 15.

After a successful first trial against Canterbury-Bankstown on the weekend, Wests Tigers Jersey Flegg will play their second trial match this Saturday against the Penrith Panthers in a curtain-raiser to the NRL trial later that night.

Wests Tigers’ young guns will then take on North Sydney in their third and final trial the following weekend at Macquarie University on Friday, February 28.

Wests Tigers Canterbury Cup side, Western Suburbs Magpies, will play their trial fixture against Mounties/Bulldogs on Saturday, February 29 at New Era Stadium, before they kick off alongside NRL at WIN Stadium on Sunday, March 15.

Western Suburbs will field a number of new faces in 2020, with Brad Abbey, Matheson Johns, Austin Dias, Joseph Ratuvakacereivalu, Salesi Fainga’a, Tyrone Faulkner, Jordin Leiu, Joseph Taipari and Lachlan Talau — the brother of NRL squad member Tommy — all taking part in the club’s NRL pre-season training.

Former Raiders and Dragons hooker Wayne Collins will take over as Head Coach for the Magpies in 2020, while Wayne Lambkin remains on as Jersey Flegg Coach.

Hope they add two teams. Someone having a bye every week sucks

Same… Would’ve thought that an extra game would be more valuable…

Buzz: Remember where you read this first … the NRL will be a 17-team competition with two teams in Brisbane by 2023, when the current broadcast deal expires.

There will be an extra bye each week to help with player burnout.

That is the mail your columnist has been getting in Perth, where the game’s powerbrokers have gathered for the Nines and a CEO conference.

The decision on expansion has to be made by July to enable NRL CEO Todd Greenberg, ARLC chairman Peter V’landys and commercial chief Andrew Abdo to take the new competition format to potential broadcasters.

The AFL’s already out in the market.

Poor attendances at the Nines over the weekend should end any debate about having a team from WA in any expanded NRL competition.
