In-demand Arrow heading to Souths: report
Gold Coast Titans forward Jai Arrow is set to be lured to NRL rivals South Sydney by a whopping $4 million deal, according to reports.
News Corp Australia says the off-contract Maroons representative has already met with Rabbitohs chief Shane Richardson with team mentor Wayne Bennett admitting he is keen to be reunited with the 24-year-old, having coached him at the Broncos.
"We would like to have Jai at South Sydney," Bennett was quoted as saying.
"I haven't spoken to Jai personally, Shane Richardson is handling it all. Richo is meeting with his manager in the next 24 to 48 hours. He has already met with Jai and that's our position.
"We'll have a conversation over the next 24 hours and hopefully Jai's manager is happy with our offer.
"Me and Jai work great together. He knows if he comes to South Sydney I will want him here. It's a great club with a lot of tradition and Jai would fit in well here."
The Roosters are looking for a forward to replace Sam Burgess, who has been forced to retired due to injuries, and Bennett said Arrow was the ideal replacement.
