Eels Reject Reports They Want Tim Simona

Parramatta has strongly rejected reports linking the club to Wests Tigers star Tim Simona.

“Contrary to media reports, the Parramatta Eels have made no contact re Tim Simona and are satisfied with its current options at centre,” said the Eels.

The 25-year-old Samoan international is off contract at the end of this season, and with a number of stars coming off-contract (including James Tedesco), it's understood the Wests Tigers are looking to offload Simona due to salary cap issues. ran a story linking him to the Gold Coast Titans. But little has been reported regarding Parramatta's interest.
