Under the historic agreement, Tigers centre Momirovski will arrive at the Storm within the next week to offer another outside back option at the southern powerhouse, with an eye to returning to Concord at the end of the season.

I have read the latest reports during my lunchbreak. Back to work now!

Congratulations to the Tigers faithful. We tried, but it was not to be.

I guess this is a coming home of sorts. Good outcome. Well done.

Oh, that's a relief. :p

I thought we would be linked to him. We seem to be with nearly everyone else that crops up. We are the Wigan of the NRL in that regard. I am sure that moto748 moto748 understands where I am coming from. ;)

TIGERS WON’T RELEASE WANTAWAY TIGERS STAR

Mark Geyer has slammed Tigers prop Josh Aloiai and his management for trying to angle their way out of the club for a richer deal at the Sea Eagles.

Aloiai has been ordered back to training on November 30 and the Tigers won’t release him until there is an advantageous outcome for the club.

Aloiai’s manager also manages the man he is trying to replace at Manly.

“This is what is being alleged, Aloiai’s manager also manages Addin Fonua-Blake who left the Sea Eagles in another dicey situation because Addin couldn’t stay in Sydney for certain reasons,” Ginnane said on Triple M.

“He signed with the Warriors on a lucrative deal, which is fine, but now Manly has got a hole.

And it would be more beneficial to Aloiai and the manager if he went to Manly because he can sign for more money.”

Geyer called for the Tigers and other clubs to sit players out in order to make a stand against player managers holding clubs to ransom.

“Sooner or later we are going to see a club draw a line in the sand,” Geyer said.

“It seems the poor old Tigers are involved again. Ryan Matterson did the same thing last year.

“It won’t stop until someone bites down on the mouthguard and says you are staying.”
