Promising West Tigers fullback James Tedesco has agreed a 3 year deal with the Raiders.
Last ditch attempts by the West Tigers to keep the 21 year old have failed after a lucrative offer was put forward by the Raiders – believed to be nearly $2 million over 3 years.
What do you think Raiders fan’s?
Further details on the signing
Ninemsn is reporting they have also confirmed Proctor from the Storm on a reported 3 years, $2.1 million deal. Good day for the Raiders.
Herald Sun reporting Proctor has signed with Melbourne (which is a shame for Raiders fans) – http://www.heraldsun.com.au/sport/nrl/melbourne-storm-beat-cashedup-poaches-to-resign-kevin-proctor-to-new-deal/story-fni3gpfh-1226933519179
That’s great news for The Raiders. I reckon Tedesco will be better than the current fullback.
How is the ACT Labor minority government going to fund it though? Perhaps they could realocate some of the $23 million they are paying to our GWS Giants who are actually doing worse than The Raiders.
Looks like Ninemsn jumped the gun.
Cashed-up poachers? Because it’s really OK when other clubs come in and steal our players but not OK when we do the same?
