29-year-old Mark ‘Piggy’ Riddell recently left the Wigan Warriors in order to be close to his ill mother in Sydney.
The former Dragons and Eels hooker is hoping to secure a deal with an NRL club for 2011.
Rumours are now abounding that he might be close to such a deal with the West Tigers.
Riddell is a versatile player and would be a suitable back up fro Robbie Farah. As well as being able to play in the forwards, Riddell would provide cover in case of injury to the Tigers superstar duo of Benji Marshall and Farah.
