If the Titans ultimately lose young back-rower Morgan Boyle, it won’t be because they didn’t want to keep him.
According to Fox Sports, the Titans have tabled a new three-year extension to Boyle, in the hopes of staving off interest from rival clubs.
The offer comes after the Tigers were last month reported to have offered Boyle a lucrative $500,000 per year deal to lure the Raiders junior down to Concord.
In related news, nrl.com yesterday reported that the Titans will struggle to field Boyle in first grade for the remainder of the season due to second tier salary cap restrictions.
Boyle has featured 9 times in first grade for the Titans this year, however as long as there are members of the top 25 available for the Gold Coast, they’re no longer able to get a salary cap exemption for Boyle.
We suspect that won’t be an issue on his next deal, wherever that ends up.
