Wests Tigers coach Jason Taylor has his sights set on luring aggressive Roosters enforcer Kane Evans to Leichhardt, reports www.foxsportscom.au.
“The Wests Tigers are ready to launch a bid for Evans and entice the 25-year-old to leave his digs in Bondi and return to his junior club,” reports www.foxsports.com.au.
