Last week Hull’s red hot winger Mahe Fonua was linked to a return to the NRL with West’s Tigers. This was bad news for Hull FC fans who have been enjoying his fantastic form in recent games.
The Twitter rumour mill got going and news was soon spread that Fonua was wanted by West’s.
Fox News Australia appear to have quashed those rumours though as they are reporting West’s are now pursuing Widnes winger Corey Thompson. The former Cantebury Bulldog would be reunited with former teammate Josh Reynolds.
If they sign Thompson it’s unlikely The Tigers would need another winger as they have re-signed David Nofoaluma on a long term deal.
If this new development is true it will be music to the ears of Hull fans although that doesn’t mean there won’t be other potential NRL suitors looking at Fonua.
