Breaking news: West Tigers are reportedly interested in signing fantastic star

Cross-code sensation Solomon Alaimalo is apparently the target of the Wests Tigers, who met with head coach Benji Marshall.

Alaimalo was a pillar of support for the Chiefs and Highlanders in Super Rugby, New Zealand, before stepping away from the game in 2021 to address anxiety and depression.

Since then, he has made a comeback to the rugby union field, playing for the Chiefs in their Super Rugby season’s opening match. He then spent the remainder of the season with Canterbury, a side that plays in New Zealand’s provincial league.

The 27-year-old is reportedly attracting interest from the Wests Tigers and has already had talks with them about a potential switch to the NRL, according to News Corp.

In comparison to the same mold as previous Dally M medallist Roger Tuivasa-Sheck, Alaimalo would be the Tigers’ second recent addition to the Super Rugby roster.

This year, outside back Triston Reilly made his NRL debut with the NSW Waratahs before joining the club’s Top 30 roster.

His rugby union professional career has lasted 105 games and produced 190 points as of the beginning of October, 95 of which were with the Chiefs.

Gavin Orr, the manager of Alaimalo, told Wide World of Sports last month that his player “has a good mix of speed, step, and power.”

“The guy has everything it takes to be a real success in the NRL.
