The Wests Tigers could make an immediate splash in the player transfer market with reports the club are looking to poach a Broncos star.
With the recent medical retirement of Ben Matulino and the departures of Esan Marsters and Ryan Matterson, the joint venture has suddenly become flush with cash in their salary cap and are targeting a number of players to revamp their roster.
The Sydney Morning Herald is reporting that the biggest name on their list is Anthony Milford.
Despite being contracted until the end of 2020, including a player option for the 2021 season, the Wests Tigers view Milford as a potential long-term replacement for veteran Benji Marshall or the piece to finally fill their fullback spot since the departure of James Tedesco two years ago.
Milford is believed to be on around $1 million a season at the Broncos with many pundits believing he hasn’t consistently been value for the Broncos.
With Brisbane managing a tight salary cap and looking for ways to retain future superstar David Fifita, releasing Milford is certainly an option.
