That is not quite how it works. We will be paying the difference between what he was owed and his Leeds contract. Hopefully they are paying him plenty
It’s pretty simple , sironen was on $300,000 for example and we didn’t want him. He was happy to stay in reserves. Manly come in and says we will take him but only willing to pay him $200,000. He has a registered contract within the NRL for $300,000 so unless he is willing to take a pay cut we have to make up the difference. Same with Farah and Souths. If Tui has asked for a release to the super league, we owe him nothing.
So which players have asked for a release ?
And who are we still chipping in for ?
To lazy to do research !
Thx Geo Middleton!
We need mongrel ..
No more plodders !

After he got a tap on the shoulder telling him he is not part of our future first grade plans.
Clubs don’t have to release contracted players if they don’t want to. Why would we pay for him to play for manly if we wanted him here in the first place? Same as the Farah situation.
Moses Mbye requested an early release from his Buldogs contract to take one up with us so I guess that means they don't have to top up anything either..he was also released from his contract. .TIGERPOWER wrote: ↑Thu 12 Jul, 2018 5:50 pm
Each cas is different true given Lolohea torm who to say he wasnt given permission to look elsewhere
Idk if we are or are not topping up any of his salary just to assume we aren't because he asked d for a release is not the case...
I heard there was Interest from several NRL clubs but they demanded that WT meet some part of his future salary. Tigers would not agree to this. It is my understanding that his English club will be fully responsible for his contract commitments from next season onwards.Roar Power wrote: ↑Thu 12 Jul, 2018 5:20 pm
