Wakefield to land their biggest deal of all-time in Andrew Fifita?
Rugby League Week has reported that Wakefield have offered a deal to Cronulla forwrd Andrew Fifita, in what arguably would be the club’s biggest ever signing.
The man who scored the winning try in the Grand Final for the Sharks, is looking for a fresh start away from the NRL, after falling out with officials for not being selected for the Australian national side, and his brother David could be the driving factor in bringing him to the UK.
The pair are said to be very close. The exact sum or contract terms are not know, but if Trinity pull this one out the bag, it will undoubtedly be one of the biggest signings by any club in the Super League era.
However, it’s understood the Newcastle Knights are one club hoping to keep Andrew down under, and are also said to be ready to offer a deal to the 27-year old.
Wire to sign Naiqama
We reported last week that Hull FC and Warrington were chasing West Tigers outside-back Kevin Naiqama, and it looks as if its the Wolves who have won the race for his signature.
The Fiji international has reportedly signed a 2-year deal with the League Leaders Shield winners, who is looking to spend time in Super League before returning to Australia to finish his career.
Rugby League Week also reports that Warrington have their eye on Manly winger Jorge Taufua.
Dragons to bolster 2017 ranks with Jackson Hastings
Catalans are desperately looking to bolster their depleted squad for 2017, including looking for a replacement for Todd Carney. Reports suggest that Roosters half Jackson Hastings could be the man to fill the void.
The 20-year old has made 32 appearances for Sydney since 2014, but struggled for game-time in 2016 spending most of the season playing for the U20s. Trent Robinson indicated earlier in the year that he could leave the club, and it looks like Catalans may be his next destination.
