It turns out Josh Dugan wasn’t required.
A week after it emerged that the Dragons custodian was the Roosters’ Plan B at fullback, it’s been revealed that they’ve landed their Plan A.
According to a News report, Tigers fullback James Tedesco has agreed to join the Bondi-based club, following his captain, Aaron Woods, out the door. Woods was revealed yesterday to be joining the Bulldogs.
The report indicates that both Tedesco and Woods have already informed teammates of their decisions.
These signings close the book on a tumultuous month for the Tigers, that’s seen them sack coach Jason Taylor, appoint Ivan Cleary as their new coach and lose home-grown stars Mitchell Moses, Tedesco and Woods.
In earlier news, the club today announced the re-signing of David Nofoaluma. So that was nice.
