“Clubs have started talking about November 1st and who to target.

“Some clubs won’t have the money to hunt, but others are moving around their caps right now to make sure there’s room to go after a big name once some of these players run out in a few months.” enter the open market.”

The Panthers will hope to secure three stars for the long haul, while Cameron Munster’s contract saga acts as one of the biggest storylines in recent NRL memory.

REYNOLDS RETURNS HOME

Former Blues representative Josh Reynolds has reportedly been immediately fired from his contract with Hull FC.

According to Hull Daily Mailthe 33-year-old is in talks with Hull power brokers for an interim exit, with five months left on his current deal.

Hull FC players were reportedly notified of the departure of their squad on Saturday, ending a disappointing spell abroad.

Reynolds is said to be the highest-paid player in the club’s history, but he was unable to shoot in the Super League, with a subpar performance against the Catalan Dragons reportedly being the last straw for the bosses.

The former Bulldogs and Tigers playmaker had a one-year option before the end of this season, but was not offered an extension.

During Hull’s 2022 campaign, Reynolds has long been sidelined due to injury, having played only 60 per cent of the club’s games since his arrival.

PEACHEY’S TIGERS EXIT

The Wests Tigers have given out-of-favor utility company Tyrone Peachey the chance to negotiate with NRL rivals after its management asked permission to explore its options.

The Daily Telegraph reported that the Tigers will allow Peachey to find another club, despite having 18 months left on his two-year deal with the club.

The 30-year-old was signed by the Tigers after the Titans chose not to extend his three-year stay on the Gold Coast.

However, Peachey struggled for playing time under former coach Michael Maguire and now interim coach Brett Kimmorley with the Tigers.

Peachey has scored one try in just eight appearances for the club this season, and most of those appearances have come off the bench.

Football director Tim Sheens has adopted a development strategy in an effort to change the club by focusing on their impressive juniors coming through the ranks.

It remains to be seen if Peachey would be open to exploring possibilities in the Super League if no NRL club pops up for the veteran.

At his best, however, Peachey is an excellent resource and can add depth and skill to an NRL team looking to bolster its banking options ahead of the finals and into the following season.
