Wests Tigers would like to clarify media reports around the contract status of Mitchell Moses.
Due to the current uncertainty surrounding the salary cap for 2018 and beyond the club has decided to prioritise the re-signings of captain Aaron Woods and James Tedesco.
As a result the current contract offer that was with Moses’ management was taken off the table by Wests Tigers.
After being made aware of this decision Moses’ management requested an immediate release from the remainder of Moses’ current contract; this request was denied by Wests Tigers.
This decision was purely made due to the current uncertainty surrounding the salary cap, with the club not willing to put itself in a risky position for 2018 and beyond.
The club informed Moses’ management that it would be willing to revisit negotiations once the 2018 salary cap figure was confirmed.
