WESTS Tigers are in danger of losing star centre Tim Simona as they continue to attempt to juggle their salary cap.

The Tigers have to let a player go to fit under the cap – and RLW has learned that the Samoan international is being shopped around to rival clubs.

Born in New Zealand, Simona moved to Sydney as a youngster and has played all his top grade football at the Tigers.

He has played over 100 games for the club and has also played five internationals for Samoa since being first chosen in 2014.

Several clubs are short of class centres and there is expected to be considerable interest in Simona.

The Tigers were considering releasing utility Kyle Lovett but his future is currently in limbo after he was charged with drug possession recently.
