News broke recently that Wests Tigers cult hero, and try scoring enigma, Alex Twal may be on the look out for a new club soon.

Reportedly he has been given permission to explore his options elsewhere.

As with when any player either comes off contract, or is given supposed permission to look around, he has been linked to a host of clubs.

For the record, I believe this is a smart move on the Tigers behalf. They need to prioritise their younger, higher up-side middles with a look to the future.

With the greatest of respects to Twal, who had a more than solid season, he'll have to make his next move knowing that the Tigers have deemed him excess to requirements.

With that in mind, we look to five potential landing spots for the super popular 27 year-old:

4. Melbourne Storm

Speaking of super coaches who drag the best out of players, Craig Bellamy is the undisputed king.

His entire starting back row of Trent Loiero, Elisea Katoa and Josh King all fall under this category.

They lost a mountain of experience when they lost both Bromwich brothers last year. Tariq Sims has played ok but hasn't set the world on fire just yet.

Twal is a handy option, who I believe would flourish under the guidance of Bellamy.

Currently the Storm are yet to sign any new additions for 2024, while they're also not officially losing anyone either. You'd guess there'd be movement for a signing or two.

Twal is such a Bellamy signing. Raw talent, probably not setting the world on fire, but I guarantee after 12 months in Melbourne would be a weapon.
