Wests Tigers are set to announce the signing of former Rabbitohs prop Tom Amone to their 30-man roster, leaving Michael McGuire with just the two spots left ahead of the 2021 season.
According to The Sydney Morning Herald's Christian Nicolussi, the Tigers have added the 24-year-old to their squad.

Amone played nine matches for Souths after making his debut with the club in 2019 and was one of seven players delisted by the Rabbitohs in November last year, joining James Roberts, Ethan Lowe, Jack Johns, Cory Denniss, Kurt Dillon and Ky Rodwell on the outer at Redfern.
The Westmead local will look to add plenty of depth and selection pressure for Maguire, with new recruits Joe Ofahengaue and James Tamou set to man starting roles this season.
The Tigers announced the extension of young halfback Jock Madden to a new deal over the weekend, with the 20-year-old prolonging his stay at Concord until the end of the 2022 season.
