If rumours are to be believed, the Panthers are apparently looking to bolster their already highly impressive front row stocks, which can’t help but beg the question: why?
Having previously been linked to a possible play for off-contract Storm prop Tim Glasby, the Panthers have now been linked to Dragons forward Leeson Ah Mau as well.
According to the Western Weekender, Ah Mau is “rumoured to have attracted the interest” of the Panthers, as well as the Knights and his current club, the Dragons.
We expressed our doubts about the Panthers’ need for another front rower when the Glasby story broke, however the link to Ah Mau lends at least some credence to the possibility that the Panthers are indeed looking to squeeze another big man into their rotation.
If nothing else, this news is likely to be irritating to the Knights, who’ve also been linked to both players, and need their help infinitely more than the Panthers do.
Ah Mau has played 160 first grade games for the Dragons, Cowboys and Warriors, and 15 Tests for Samoa.
