The Wests Tigers will have a salary cap to add to the marquee list in 2021 as Josh Reynolds prepares for an early exit to join Super League’s Hull FC.
NRL.com understands that Reynolds has orally agreed to a three-year deal with Hull FC, the 2005 prime minister’s winner and Brett Hodgson as the Tigers ’last assistant coach.
Both clubs have not made any official comments, but it is understood that Reynolds’ release will be sealed by the Tigers in the coming days.
Reynolds ’departure releases the best portion of the $ 500,000 cap on the Tigreen’s salary cap after a successful purchase by NRL rivals last season.
With a six-figure figure already set for next season, Reynolds ’initial release will have the Tigers well positioned to carry the prestigious signature.
The club recently began negotiations with storm star Josh Addo-Carr, who has been busy for a season, as Joe Ofahengaue and James Roberts have seen Josh Aloyai’s Manlyra arrive in the middle of a turbulent move.
Reynolds ’dismissal puts an end to the 31-year-old Tigers, who in 2017 was signed by former coach Ivan Cleary in a four-year deal worth about $ 3 million in 2017.
Concord’s NSW Origin five-eighth season has been incredibly difficult, having played just 22 games in three seasons.
He joined Hull FC after Benji Marshall, a midfielder for the Tigers, was pushed back by Hodgson.
The Super League move will bring Reynolds closer to his NRL career, playing a total of 160 games for 160 Tigers and Bulldogs, as well as four backgrounds including the famous 2014 Blues series.
