With little news on the future of Ryan Hoffman, it’s been widely assumed that he’ll land back at the Storm in 2018. That may well be the case, but the Storm aren’t the only team in the hunt.
According to 7Sport, the Roosters are also pursuing Hoffman, and are willing to offer him more money as well.
The Roosters were first linked to Hoffman three weeks ago, and we speculated at the time that the only way they’d be able to lure him there would be by offering more than the Storm. It seems they’re giving it a red hot go.
The Roosters view Hoffman as a middle forward who’d add experience to their pack, while Hoffman is connected to the club via former teammate Matt King, who’s on the coaching staff.
The longer he goes without joining the Storm, the more it appears that he’ll head elsewhere. The Roosters may well be that destination.
