WELCOME to The Mole’s Monday Scoops! Here’s the highly accurate rodent’s best work this week . . .

WILLIE CAN WAIT
The Mole’s Monday Scoops!
WILLIE Mason has been told there’s no rush to secure the Samoan passport which will allow him to extend his career with Catalans Dragons.

Asked if there was a time-frame to get the well-travelled forward onboard for this season, coach Laurent Frayssinous told RLW: “I think we have until June 30 (the Super League signings deadline).”

Mason needs a Samoan passport to sidestep the overseas quota.

“We are progressing, we’re still waiting for the passport,” added Frayssinous. “He will not come if not, because we have not got the quota (place available).”

DALEY SET TO JOIN WARRIORS

BLUES coach Laurie Daley is set to take up a consultancy role at the Warriors.

Daley has been brought in to assist impressive young coach Andrew McFadden as the Warriors attempt to break their title drought in 2016.

The pair were team-mates at Canberra back in the 1990s and have remained firm friends.

They have already had some informal chats, with Daley set to perform video reviews of Warriors games and pass on his tips to McFadden.

The Warriors have the squad to make a huge impact in 2016 – and Daley’s big match experience can only help.

PANTHERS POUNCE ON BOOM ROOSTER

THE Roosters are set to lose boom youngster Jack Hetherington to Penrith this week.

A talented utility who looked the goods in the NYC last season, Hetherington – the grandson of Roosters legend Bill Mullins and son of former Canberra prop Brett Hetherington – can play both centre and back row.

He had just one season at the Roosters, leaving after a difference of opinion with the club – but will be gladly snapped up by the Panthers who see him as a real prospect.

LANGI FINDS NEW CLUB

FORMER Australian Schoolboys star Samisoni Langi is set to play for Souths this year after being signed by Rabbitohs feeder side Norths.

A utility back with plenty of talent, the 22-year-old Langi played a handful of top grade games for the Roosters in 2013 and was seen as a genuine first grader.

But he failed to gone on with it and the change of colours could be just what he needs.

Souths are skinny for outside backs and with Alex Johnson injuring his shoulder in the Nines, he could prove a valuable addition to the ranks.

PLAYER SWAP RUMOURS OFF THE MARK
Robert Jennings
A HOT rumour doing the rounds lately in that the Eels are considering a player swap with neighbours and arch rivals Penrith.

The rumour goes that the Eels want boom Panthers colt Robert Jennings – and would play him alongside brother and new signing Michael in the backline.

The Eels were set to be so keen on the idea that they were prepared to offer the Panthers star playmaker Corey Norman.

It’s been rife on social media and there’s just one problem … it’s not right.

Both Norman and Jennings are staying right where they are for the coming season.
