West Coast is reportedly keeping tabs on young Tiger Shai Bolton, with the Western Australian out of contract at the end of the season.

Bolton has played 16 games for the Tigers in 2019 – including the last nine, which have all been wins.

Channel 7’s Tom Browne reports the Eagles are looking to bring Bolton home, despite the Tigers putting a strong offer in front of the 20-year-old.

Richmond has made a good offer and there’s every chance Bolton could still sign it,” Browne said.

“West Coast has made a major, major play.

“Bolton’s from Perth. The attractiveness of West Coast’s offer … it could be good for family reasons.”

Bolton looks set to hold his spot and play his first final for the Tigers this Saturday night.
