Broncos ready to make Moga their man

THE BRONCOSĀ are zeroing in on enigmatic centre Tautau Moga to replace the retired Jack Reed in their backline next season.

Still only 22, Moga has had an injury-plagued NRL career, playing only seven games in the past two seasons, including a solitary appearance for Paul Green’s team in 2016.

But the former Roosters centre’s talent is undeniable and, if fit, he could prove a big asset to Wayne Bennett out wide.

Moga is off-contract at the Cowboys and the club is unlikely to make him an offer that will match the money the Broncos are prepared to throw his way.

The Samoan international has been a forgotten man at the Cowboys – although he did make the headlines last month when he was fined along with several team-mates for a bizarre egg-throwing incident.

Moga began his NRL career as a raw teenager at the Roosters in 2012 and showed his potential with seven tries in 14 games. He moved to the Cowboys in 2014 but has struggled in Townsville with injuries and a lack of consistency.
