I still think the back row needs a 'star' signing

Still missing a massive backrower to get us over the gainline! The pack does seem to be shaping up nicely if the rumours are true.

I would consider the Tongan Colossus are a star signing if true. I emailed the Tigers to tell them to have another go with Amaneki Mafi, I don’t think they will take my journalistic opinion into their stride however.

Who would be captain of this side? Am I being harsh leaving Tom Youngs out?
Ford, seeing as he appears to be OTY's deputy now. And no, probably not.
Toomua?

If those signings are all true, then really it's just the back row that looks a bit weak.

Thompson should be a good addition, but I'm not sure that's quite "job done".

Well he doesn’t say that the deal is off but heavily stresses that he is happy at the club. Really hoping the deal is still on 🙏

By the sounds of it the deal is on from Tigers. Just hope they manage to get this one across the line, be a great addition and hopefully the start of revamping the back 5 for next season.

As good a signing spencer would be I can see that is potentially not going to happen and might just be agent talk to boost his $$$ with Warriors

From the Irish Examiner:

"Cordero’s name is one of several being circulated by agents looking for prospective contract offers from European clubs but it is understood Munster have no interest in making a bid."

Apparently he is definitely not coming to Tigers due to us dragging our feet, another Prem club swooped in and offered a contract which he has apparently accepted

Until anything is anounced, we don’t know what has happened. Inside Rugby Line just spouts rubbish and so much of it on a daily basis sometimes it happens to be true.

However would be another blow if we fail to sign him. How many players have we come out publicly saying we’re interested in, that Aussie 8, Mafi now Cordero and none of them sign. Why aren’t these players choosing to join us, doesn’t look great, hope this rumour is wrong.
