Dragons poised to pitch for Manly back

NZRU reportedly chasing Joseph Manu
While Joseph Manu has widely been tipped to become the NRL's next million-dollar man at the end of his current deal with the Sydney Roosters, there is talk the New Zealand Rugby Union will become a player in the race for Manu's signature.
While it's understood they would be unable to pay Manu what he could likely command in NRL, it remains to be seen whether the lure of an All Blacks jumper could tempt the star to switch codes.
Eels could lose up to six stars in 2023
The Parramatta Eels are facing something of a contract crisis from November 1, with six key players all set to be able to negotiate with other clubs.
All of Dylan Brown, Clint Gutherson, Reed Mahoney, Ryan Matterson, Isaiah Papali'i and Junior Paulo are yet to recommit to the Eels beyond the end of 2022, and their salary cap could be under significant pressure to try and fit all six players in, with each likely to be chasing salary upgrades.
Norman's only option may be England
With the Dragons telling the half he won't be re-signed to stay in Wollongong, reports now suggest both the Catalans Dragons and Wigan Warriors are interested.

Rugby Union could make a play to snatch Viliame Kikau
It's understood Kikau is currently on around $700,000 at the Panthers, but is free to negotiate with other clubs from November 1, with his contract expiring at the end of 2022 with Penrith.
While Kikau could be chased hard by many NRL clubs, it's also thought rugby union could slash serious cash, following the success of fellow Fijian Semi Radradra's switch to the 15-man game.

Woods open to Tigers' homecoming
Woods told the media on Wednesday afternoon that he was glad the August transfer deadline had passed, and said he wasn't in a rush to sign a new contract.
Woods told the media as well that he would never say no to a homecoming and to finish his career at the Tigers, sparking rumours of a possible homecoming for the prop.
Brandon Smith reportedly tabled monster offer to stay at the Storm
It's understood there could be at least six clubs interested in Brandon Smith, meaning the Storm will have an enormous fight on their hands to keep the Kiwi star.
However, reports have surfaced suggesting the club have offered the hooker and lock a deal of more than $600,000 per year.
OFFICIAL: Felise Kaufusi commits for another year in Melbourne
The extension, however, will only see Kaufusi stay with the Storm for, at a minimum, another 12 months.
It means he will almost instantly be free to negotiate with other clubs, with those off contract at the end of 2022 able to negotiate from November 1.

Kai O'Donnell set for Cronulla lifeline
The 22-year-old Brisbane-born forward was released by the Raiders earlier this year when the competition was relocated to south east Queensland.
