The Canterbury Bulldogs are believed to have tabled an offer to out of favour Eel Bevan French.
French, 22, is now stuck behind Clint Gutherson in the fullback pecking order and with Blake Ferguson joining the club in 2019, it could force his hand when he’s able to start negotiating with rival clubs from November 1.
The exciting young talent is open to a move as he has made no secrets of his desire to play fullback – yet Eels coach Brad Arthur has given no garauntee of that eventuating.
Although that is what the Bulldogs are believed to be offering French.
The Eels are reportedly not going to stand in the 22-years old way either and are very open to offloading French, as their offseason clean out continues.
