The Canberra Raiders have given star hooker Josh Hodgson permission to explore his options, with the Wests Tigers circling the England international. Hodgson's management approached the Raiders late last week for consent to look around. He's now reportedly been offered a two-year deal with the Tigers, who need to negotiate his release from the Green Machine. The 31-year-old's contracted to Canberra for next season, but wasn't going to be offered a new deal beyond that. Hodgson's highly regarded within the Raiders walls and there's a feeling his quality and leadership would be a perfect fit for the struggling Tigers.
