It’s been a strong week for Wests Tigers as far as signings go. Late last week, Josh Aloiai was rewarded for his excellent early season form with an extension for 2017. Elijah Taylor joined the club on Monday, completing our back row and Tim Simona extended his deal for next year as well.
It’s not often we here at BWTF can provide you with exclusives, but we’ve been told by a source close to the team that these signings will be bolstered by the addition of 3 Parramatta players as the board look to dramatically shed off contract players to provide desperately needed salary cap relief.
We had heard some rumours yesterday afternoon which was then Bolstered by the NRL Rumour Account the NRL Agent who confirmed on twitter:
Hearing WT interested in Eels fire sale. JT pushing for Nathan Peats & Kaysa Pritchard while Isaac De Gois could return "home" to Concord
— NRL Agent (@NRLAgent) May 3, 2016
Parramatta Hookers Nathan Peats, Kayasa Pritchard and Isaac De Gois will join the club with immediate effect. Peats and Pritchard will be signed until the end of 2018, and De Gois will see out the season.
De Gois seemed pleased to find out he will return to WT. “I’m so glad I get to go out at the club that started it all for me. I look forward to repaying the club for the opportunity.”, he said. Isaac was also happy to come to a club where the Manager of Football Operations buys Pizza for the players after games. “Buckets told me I could order Pepperoni thin n crispy and get some Coronas too. Pretty stoked really.”
While Pritchard and Peats were unavailable for comment at this time, Coach Jason Taylor was over the moon. “We should be able to run 6 Hookers in our squad for Round 10 and I think that is great. The future is really exciting for Wests Tigers.”
