The Wests Tigers are poised to Offer Bulldogs five-eighth Josh Reynolds Mega-contract
The Wests Tigers have pulled their contract offers to Captain Aaron Woods and Star Fullback James Tedesco, as the 5pm deadline had passed with no response from either player.
The Tigers are understood to have close to $3.5 million to spend in the player market. They now prepard to return serve to the Bulldogs, offering Reynolds a 3-year contract work $850,000 per season.
Reynolds would replace the departing Mitchell Moses, who signed with the Parramatta Eels and is seeking a immediate release, but new coach Ivan Cleary is expected to deny the rest and make Moses play out his 2017 contract.
Reynolds would team up with talented young halfback Luke Brooks and would provide the experience in the halves Brooks has been missing to develop.
Canterbury fan favourite Josh Reynolds is desperate to stay at Canterbury and talks with the club about a contract extension are still ongoing, but it is understood the Bulldogs have only offered Reynolds $500,000 per season, a long way off of what he believes he is worth and is now seriously considering the Tigers Offer.
Reynolds has made 128 appearances and scored 39 tries, since making his debut in Round 11 of the 2011 NRL season, against the Canberra Raiders at hooker in the Bulldogs’ 20-12 loss at Canberra Stadium.
