News Limited journalist Dean Richie is reporting that James Tedesco has backed out of his deal to join the Canberra Raiders and is looking to remain with the Wests Tigers.
This is a stunning backflip and a devastating blow for the Raiders.
What prompted the backflip is anyone’s guess, but the Raiders form in recent weeks can’t have helped.
To turn his back on so much money, Tedesco has obviously had some major reservations about the move.
More will no doubt come out over the coming days. For now, the crazy world of Rugby League keeps spinning.
