The parties involved in the tangled Martin Offiah transfer will sit around a table today to thrash out the details of who gets what.

News Limited, with whom Offiah has a three-year Super League "loyalty" contract, the London Broncos, and Bedford Rugby Union Club will try to sort out the question of who has first call on the Wigan and Great Britain winger's services.

London believed they had an agreement with Bedford covering the overlap between the two rugby seasons, but it is not yet one that satisfies News.

"But I see no reason why the deal should not go through, and I would be astounded if it didn't," Offiah's agent, Alan McColm, said yesterday.

The Broncos contend that he will make his debut against Warrington at The Valley on Sunday in the match that could decide fourth place in the Super League.
