Wesser To Test Himself On The Open Market
Penrith?s try scoring freak, Rhys Wesser, Plans to test his worth on the open market come July 1st. Wesser says he would like to stay with the Panthers but also wants to see what other clubs offer him before committing to a new deal.
Wesser has scored an incredible 12 tries from seven matches this season and at this rate should finish up with 30 tries for the season. Wesser is also being considered for Queensland as State of Origin draws nearer. Both Wesser and fellow Queenslander Clinton Schifcofske are the form players of the competition, but incumbent Darren Lockyer is certain to retain his position, possibly shifting both Wesser and Schifcofske to the wings. Matt Sing is also another player mentioned in Origin circles and has scored eight tries from seven matches this season.
If, as expected, the Queensland selectors choose Wesser for State of Origin duties this year, his worth to any club will increase significantly and this is sure to be a factor in Wesser choosing to go on the market as a ?free agent?.
The Wests Tigers, cashed up for next season are sure to make a significant bid for the fullback but there are rumours some high profile Sydney clubs will also be in the thick of the bidding war for Wesser?s services.
