Rival clubs to field $500k offer for Turuva

Fiji Bati fullback Sunia Turuva is set to sit down with rival NRL clubs, placing himself on the open market after negotiations with his current club, the Penrith Panthers fell flat.

According to the Sydney Morning Herald, Panthers bosses reportedly tabled him a deal worth $350,000 per-season and can’t increase the deal due to salary cap limitations.

The Panthers have recently re-signed Taylan May and Izack Tago and have reportedly handed Paul Alamoti a new deal beyond 2024.

Turuva, who is without a deal past the 2024 season, could reportedly field offers worth around $500,000 by rival clubs.

The 21-year-old enjoyed a breakout year in 2023 and won the Dally M Rookie of the Year, however he’s eyeing a switch to fullback.

Salary cap pressures have seen several players depart the foot of the mountain in recent years, namely Viliame Kikau, Stephen Crichton and Jarome Luai at the end of this season.
