Former Australian forward Mark Geyer has called on Wests Tigers to stand their ground as forward Josh Aloiai and his manager continue to try and get the rising prop out of his current deal.
The Wests Tigers have already confirmed they won’t release the Samoan International early.
“Sooner or later we are going to see a club draw a line in the sand,” Geyer said on Triple M.
“It seems the poor old Tigers are involved again. Ryan Matterson did the same thing last year.
“It won’t stop until someone bites down on the mouthguard and says you are staying.”
In some good news for the club on Friday, it was announced Penrith young gun Daine Laurie was joining the joint venture from season 2022 on a two-year deal.
Meanwhile Wests Tigers legend Benji Marshall’s chances of continuing his career at a rival in 2021 took another shot with strong word about that Cronulla have pulled out of the race.
North Queensland and Canterbury are still a chance of nabbing the veteran half.
