Tony Puletua

The Parramatta Eels are being linked to a move for St Helens’ Kiwi Test ace Tony Puletua.

Puletua, 33, is off contract at the end of 2013 but given his age, one can only assume the move would be for this season. The Eels recently missed out on signing Wigan Warriors forward Gareth Hock who was since been loaned to the Widnes Vikings.

The former Penrith Panthers back-rower is in his fifth season at Saints and was a stand-out player last term.
