Two more Australian rugby league stars will attempt to make the switch to the NFL next season, according to The Mole from the Wide World of Sports.
Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles players Kelepi Tanginoa and Taniela Paseka have been following the latest craze and both have secretly been trialing for contracts in American football.
Neither man has much NRL experience to boast about, but former South Sydney reserve grader Jordan Mailata has proved you don’t necessarily need that to make it in the NFL.
Mailata’s NFL career prospects have seemingly gone more to plan than Jarryd Hayne’s, with the 21-year-old signing a four-year deal reportedly worth $2.5 million dollars with the Philadelphia Eagles.
Paseka has been in recent talks with an NFL team, meanwhile Tanginoa shined in an NFL Combine Camp which was held by Australia agents ‘Pacific Sports Management’ that scouts from leading clubs attended.
Both men are aiming to earn and secure an NFL contract in the coming weeks.
