Wests Tigers could be in the box seat to land Melbourne Storm winger Josh Addo-Carr according to NRL.com

Reports suggest that the Tigers have put forward a multi-million dollar bid to try and get the ‘Foxx’ back to the club where he started his NRL career in 2016. 

If the Tigers do sign Add-Carr, coach Michael Maguire is tempted to add another string to his bow as he aims at putting the winger in the half-back position. 

“I spoke to Josh, but I have no idea where the management are with that one,” Maguire told NRL.com. 

“Obviously a player of that calibre, you’re always looking to improve your team so you’d be crazy not to be talking to someone like that.

“I think he’s definitely got some attributes [for a fullback]. It’d take a lot of work to be able to show that but with some time that may happen.

“He’s quick, he’s fast. He knows how to score tries. I think his energy and the way he plays the game, he’s very determined.

“That’s one thing, you ask me about [desirable] attributes of players, just the determination and the want to win all the little moments. He’s a competitor.”

The Tigers meanwhile, are not even entering the idea that they need to offer Storm anything – in particular David Nofoaluma – to get the deal done. 

“No chance – there’s no way in the world that Dave’s leaving,” Maguire said.

“He loves this club and you can see by the way he plays. And I really enjoy coaching Dave. Dave’s a Wests Tigers player and you can see the passion in what he does. He’s not going anywhere.”
