Melbourne Rebels close to signing Koroibete

Update: 4:09PM THE Melbourne Rebels say they are close to completing a deal to bring NRL star Marika Koroibete to the Super Rugby franchise.

Rebels coach Tony McGahan said on Thursday that negotiations were well advanced and he was optimistic the Melbourne Storms Fijian winger would soon sign.

Channel 9 reported this morning that Storm did not want to comment on Koroibete but it is believed he is being offered a huge money deal the NRL club cannot match, particularly with the Australian Rugby Union topping up the coffers.
