Tai’s NRL dream likely
PAPUA New Guinea Kumuls back Roderick Tai is likely to sign a full-time contract with Redcliff Dolphins National Rugby League side but details are yet to be confirmed.
SP PNG Hunters coach Stanley Tepend said yesterday Dolphins coach Wayne Bennett had retained Tai after the completion of his initial four-week train and trial stint with the side.
Fellow Hunter Morea Morea, who was invited by the Dolphins for a four-week train and trial arrangement, returned to the SP Brewery-sponsored side after his stint in Brisbane.
“Morea Morea has been sent back but Roderick Tai is still in Brisbane with the Dolphins,” Tepend said.
“There is some good signs there with Roderick and they (Dolphins) might sign him.
“It’s not confirmed yet, I will let you all know next week but they might sign him because that’s what Wayne Bennett said.
