It has been reported on radio 2GB that Ian Hindamrsh of the Parramatta Eels and Bryan Fletcher of the Sydney Roosters have both agreed to leave their respective clubs and play with the Raiders and Rabbits respectively.
Ian Hindmarsh had his negotiations ceased late in the week and the money offered to him has gone to re-signing David Solomona while it has also been reported that three other Eels, Andrew Ryan, Brad Drew and Scott Donald are also poised to sign contracts with the Raiders in what would be the biggest spedning spree for the club in it's 21 year history.
With Souths poised to sign Fletcher along with Willie Peters and possibly Chris Walker, they will have much needed depth to compete with the big clubs after what has been a very dissapointing reintroduction for the club.
Stay tuned for more news of player signings as the dealine passes tomorrow.
