NRL star and Coast junior in possible move back to Qld
Wests Tigers co-captain and Noosa junior Moses Mbye could be headed back to his home state as his Sydney club looks to make changes for its 2021 season.
Currently sitting tenth on the NRL ladder, the Tigers are looking for a better season next year, and it seems the former Noosa Pirates star is not part of the plan.
An article in the Sydney Morning Herald on Wednesday claims the Tigers are looking to free up some funds in their salary cap, which means shopping a number of current players including Mbye and another former Bulldogs' player Josh Reynolds.
Gold Coast Titans have voiced their interest in the State of Origin player, which would be great news for Mbye's family who are all still based on the Sunshine Coast.
Still with two years to run on his current contract, the Tigers would be willing to pay up to half the 26-year-old's $800,000 salary for the next two years.
The Titans have already confirmed big names signings for 2021 including Brisbane's David Fifita, Melbourne's Tino Fa'asuamaleaui and Newcastle's Herman Ese'ese.
Having someone of Mbye's talent inside them as five-eight or hooker could mean big things for Queensland's current top team.
