St George Illawarra Dragons are reportedly interested in the services of Cronulla Shark Valentine Holmes and are set to make him a huge offer.  Holmes would slot into the Fullback position, allowing Josh Dugan to move into the Centre position.

“They’ve made inquiries about when Val is off contract,” Holmes’ manager Gavin Orr confirms.

“They’re playing Josh Dugan at centre, apparently, and are looking for a top-flight fullback, and Val certainly fits into that category.”

“Val’s really keen on the spot because he feels it will further his career,” Orr says.

“He’ll get more ball and more opportunities there than on the wing.

“But Benny is also a fine fullback and Bird needs a new spot after they signed Chad Townsend and James Maloney in the halves. It’s a tough decision for Shane Flanagan.”
