    Exactly. With the Morris boys and hoppas upgrade (and speculation mbye could be trained there) we are stretching the budget with the backline. Once the mozzes move on we can have a crack at Rona (for 19) can probably squeeze in rts aswell with the twins money.

    He's already stated if he comes back to the NRL Dogs will be his first choice.

    Wests Tigers Have Landed Another Important Signing

    The Wests Tigers signing spree sets is set to continue with Curtis Rona about to announce a deal, reports Channel Seven rugby league reporter Josh Massoud.

    “Looks like rugby's Curtis Rona is coming back to league - a done deal with @WestsTigers,” tweeted Massoud.


    The 25-year-old Kiwi winger had a fairly successful stint with the Bulldogs, scoring 35 tries in 50 games.

    He left the NRL last year to take up an offer to play Super Rugby for the Western Force.

    But this is probably just another story made up to fill space like most "journalists" do these days.

    That is from June. Nothing came from it and Rona deleted the tweet.

    With Folau skipping the spring tour, Rona should get an opportunity to establish himself as a Wallaby. I seriously can't see him just walking away from Rugby now. Both the Waratahs and Reds could use him and should be able to offer more money considering there will be the ARU top up.

    Rona will not leave rugby. Him and Jacinta both have family in WA and are settled there.

    I'm not 100% sure, but there was an interview ages back when he left Bulldogs, stating he had had his time away, and made some good money playing league, but it was time to be a father and spend time with his wife and kids.

    My guess is he made some astute investments when he was playing for us, and can live off them.

    I know he went back to perth to be with family etc, thats why we gave him a release. But i highly doubt he will give up his football career!!

    He's said in the past the move to WA is more for his wife because she's sacrificed so much in the past.

    There was talk he could play in Japan with his wife remaining in WA.

    I don't believe for a second what was said that if he comes back to league it would be with the dogs. That's just something that anyone leaving part way into a contract would say. And his second year with us wasn't all that impressive tbh.
