For months, everyone thought ‘will he or won’t he?’ That was the big question on everyone’s mind and after asking for a release, the Wests Tigers have finally granted Mitch Moses his wish to join the Parramatta Eels on a long-term deal.
The move comes at a perfect time for the Eels who will be missing Corey Norman for several weeks, with Moses expected to slot straight into the halves.
Once upon a time, Mitchell Moses was actually involved in the Parramatta system before opting to depart to search for greener pastures that led to his first-grade debut at the Tigers.
Head coach Brad Arthur is pleased to see Moses back at the club where he started, given the importance the Eels place on junior retention.
“It’s good to be welcoming back one of our junior players. Mitchell is a quality player and I believe he will be a good acquisition to our squad for 2017 onwards,” said Head Coach Brad Arthur.
The Tigers issued a short, brief statement confirming the release of Moses to the Eels.
“Wests Tigers have today released Mitchell Moses from the remainder of his playing contract, effective immediately.
Mitchell has played 67 NRL games for Wests Tigers since making his debut in 2014.
Wests Tigers thank Mitchell for his contribution while at the Club and wish him well in the future.”
