The Canberra Raiders have rejected an approach to sign Cronulla centre Josh Dugan.
Dugan's playing future is up in the air as uncertainty surrounds a potential knee injury to the former Australian international.
The Canberra product played 70 NRL games for the Green Machine to start his career, but he was sacked after he skipped training to drink Bacardi Breezers on his rooftop.
Dugan's spent the past two seasons at the Sharks, but his spot is under fire thanks to the emergence of Bronson Xerri and the return of Jesse Ramien.
It's seen him get shopped around to other NRL clubs, including the Raiders, as the Sharks try to offload some of his reported $900,000 salary.
Meanwhile, the Raiders are still waiting to find out recruit Curtis Scott's fate, with NRL chief executive Todd Greenberg potentially viewing the police footage of his arrest on Wednesday afternoon.
NSW police agreed to allow Greenberg access to their body-camera footage, with the NRL boss then set to decide whether to enforce the no-fault, stand-down policy.
Greenberg will attend the chief executive's conference in the lead-up to the NRL Nines in Perth, along with Raiders boss Don Furner.
Having found himself on the wrong side of the law in the past, Raiders star Jack Wighton said he would put an arm around Scott.
Wighton signed a four-year extension on Wednesday to keep him at the Green Machine until the end of 2024.

"Definitely, always. I've been there done that," he said.
"No one means to muck up and I'm not saying what's right or what's wrong, anything like that. I'm not going to talk out like that.
"But I'll definitely put my arm around one of my own and support him, and we'll just see what happens. I know nothing more than you do so we'll just see what happens."
Wighton will leave for the NSW south coast on Thursday as the Raiders look to show their support of the bushfire ravaged areas.
The Canberra Times revealed on Saturday the Raiders' plans to spend the week visiting their surrounding regions and provide much-needed funding and support.
Wighton, from Orange, said he was lucky and his family wasn't directly affected by the fires, which have devastated a lot of the country.
He vowed it wouldn't just be a one-off trip to the hard-hit areas and they would continue to provide support.
The Raiders have already committed to playing another pre-season trial in Bega next year.
"It's not just this weekend that we're going to go down there," Wighton said.
"It's throughout the next few years we're going to give most of our support because it's not a problem that can be solved overnight.
"[It needs] to be something we can really build into and be really passionate about. We have a lot of juniors from down there, a lot of people affected.
"To give back it's just a start tomorrow when we go down there and something we're very proud of to keep continuing."
