Australia News, Australia Headlines

The Wests Tigers have had a sudden change of heart, informing Alex Twal that he is now part of their plans in 2024 despite telling him he could leave the club just weeks ago.

Both clubs weren’t willing to pay the entire portion of Twal’s $525,000 contract in 2024 and wanted the Tigers to chip in at least $100,000 next year. The Tigers and Sea Eagles were in a discussion for a potential swap deal that would have seen Sean Keppie move from Manly to the Tigers, however he instead chose to sign with South Sydney.The 27-year-old has been a mainstay of the Tigers’ pack since his debut in 2017 and has developed a cult following, taking jibes about his inability to score an NRL try until this season in good humour.

There’s a clause that has been inserted into Bula’s new deal with the Wests Tigers that the club chose not to announce. The final year of the deal in 2027 is a mutual option.The Tigers were at loggerheads with Bula’s management in recent weeks due to the club’s reluctance to agree to a clause that would have allowed the boom rookie to leave in 2027 if the Tigers failed to make the finals in the previous three seasons.
